*NEW PROGRAM*
75 Years/75 Stories
In celebration of the Gallery’s 75th anniversary we are offering 75 Years/75 Stories, a three day program of short, engaging “pop-up” talks (10-15 minutes) about works of art in the collection on Friday, April 1, Saturday, April 2, and Sunday, April 3.  Several talks each day will be interpreted into ASL.  A full program will be available on-site on each day of the event.

ASL Video Tour
We now have a free self-guided ASL video tour available for use online and in the galleries!  The Director’s Tour (West Building highlights) has been interpreted into 27 ASL videos.  Stop by the Acoustiguide desk just inside the Mall entrance on Madison Avenue to check out an Acoustiguide device and receive written instructions on accessing the tour.

The videos can also now be viewed online!
