Remote Vibrant Verbal Description Tour

May 28, 2020

Every month, Poster House offers Vibrant Verbal Description Tours specifically for the low vision and blind community. Explore one of the museum’s shows with an experienced educator trained in the art of verbal description and learn more about the history of printed posters.

Due to the current public health crisis surrounding COVID-19, we’re bringing our description tours online through teleconference. These tours are led by our Chief Curator, allowing you intimate access to the items in our current shows.

This tour will focus on Part One of a general history of lithographic posters, starting with the Belle Époque period through the 1950s!

Please email access@posterhouse.org or call 917.722.2439 x413 by May 26 to sign up for this event. You will be emailed poster images for reference as well as information about accessing the teleconference the morning of the virtual tour.

Tours start promptly and will last approximately 90 minutes with questions.
