At this event for blind and visually impaired visitors, artist educators will lead an audio-described tour of the exhibition, followed by refreshments and a handling session.

In the devastating wake of the Wall Street Crash, artists sought to capture the changes in urbanisation, industrialisation and immigration that pulsed across the country, resulting in one of the most vital periods in the 20th century for American artists.

Join us for an audio-described tour to experience the life of 1930s America through the iconic masterpieces in this landmark show. The exhibition includes works which have rarely been seen together, by artists ranging from Jackson Pollock, Georgia O’Keeffe and Edward Hopper to Thomas Hart Benton and Philip Guston. Afterwards, our handling session will allow attendees to get closer to the range of artworks and the unique context that inspired their creation.

This event includes refreshments and volunteer support is provided.
