But a Storm Is Blowing from Paradise: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa

Recently I joined my friend Don at the Guggenheim for his Monthly Mind’s Eye tour – tours set up for visitors who are blind or have low vision.  These tours are conducted by the Guggenheim’s professionals through “verbal description, conversation, sensory experiences, and creative practice.”

I had a great time with everyone and gained new perspective on how the visually impaired can experience large scale art installations.
