ASL Tour

Saturday, January 16, 2021

2–3:30 pm

Online

Visitors from the D/deaf community are invited to experience our collection in an online American Sign Language (ASL) tour, led by a Deaf teaching artist. This virtual tour is in ASL only, without voice interpretation, and begins after a brief meet-and-greet. This month, consider how shared themes appear across cultures as we pair works of African art with American, Indigenous, and Korean art, as well as those from other parts of the world, to examine concepts of faith, origins, modernism, and portraiture.

The program is free, but space is limited, and registration is required. Once you've registered, you will receive a secure Zoom link and password by email. This tour is designed for the d/Deaf community. If you're an ASL student, please email access@brooklynmuseum.org for more information about tours for ASL students.

Questions? Email us at access@brooklynmuseum.org or call 718.501.6520. Relay calls welcome.
