The Museum of Modern Art
The Museum of Modern Art won the 2000 Access Innovation in the Arts Award. This award was presented by the VSA Arts and Metropolitan Life Foundation to recognize the museum for its innovations in developing programs to serve those who are blind and visually impaired. In 2007, MoMA received the Ruth Green Advocacy Award from the League for the Hard of Hearing. The museum offers touch tours for blind and partially sighted visitors to experience a selection of sculptures, paintings, and design objects from the collection. Art courses for blind and partially sighted visitors featuring the work of influential modern and contemporary artists are held periodically at the Museum. Each class includes touch tours, tactile diagrams, enlarged color reproductions, and hands-on activities.
