The Guggenheim recently released a Verbal Description audio tour of select works from the Thannhauser Collection on and SoundCloud. Designed for people who are blind or have low vision, Verbal Description uses precise, evocative language to convey the visual appearance of art, which is equally valuable for sighted visitors seeking closer observation of works of art. The Thannhauser tour presents not only descriptions but also contextual information for key artworks from the Thannhauser Collection, plus a history of the collection and a description of the gallery space that holds it. The audio is freely available to stream from home or on your phone while you are at the museum.
