This immersive experience features 27 new paintings by Robyn Rennie, each accompanied by a full sized tactile replica for accessibility. The element of touch gives patrons an elevated art experience. Audio descriptions allow folks to hear the artist’s insights and inspirations. 

Audio Description. Braille. Large Print Format. Touch Tour.
Each painting will have a full sized, tactile replica beside it. This replica allows the audience to touch and feel the work and experience the textures and 3-dimensional features. Audio descriptions will be available for each piece. A custom-designed, dedicated headset will be mounted beside each painting, so that you can hear the artist describe the painting and discuss the inspiration behind it. The arrangement of each set (painting, headset and tactile replica) will be very consistent for all paintings to make navigation easier. Textured indicators on the floor will facilitate locating each set using mobility canes. Braille and Large Print descriptions and instructions will be available.
