Our docents are leading a tour for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing through our Accessible Art Works program. The private tour is Wednesday, April 12 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sessions fill up quickly, so it is strongly recommended that attendees pre-register for each session.

The Accessible Art Works program provides a private, docent-led tour of specific art pieces from a current exhibition, followed by an art-making session led by a trained instructor. Accessible Art Works sessions are offered on a monthly basis. The sessions for the Blind/Low Vision will be verbally descriptive and contain tactile components. The Deaf/Hard of Hearing session will have an ASL Qualified Interpreter. We are pleased to offer the Accessible Art Workshop free of charge to participants and a companion, thanks to a generous grant from the Lowe Foundation and a partnership with the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind (AIDB).
HMA is committed to advancing a diverse and inclusive space and community by creating and implementing accessibility initiatives. We believe art and public spaces should be accessible to all.
