WATERTOWN - Unlike other art shows, visitors can touch, probe, sniff and listen to striking works by visually impaired and sighted artists in an exciting multisensory exhibition at the Mosesian Center for the Arts. Inviting visitors to explore original works through their fingertips and more, “Please Touch The Art” adds new dimensions to viewers' encounters with 52 unique pieces made by 40 artists. Like the blind, visually impaired and sighted artists whose work is on display, this thoughtful exhibit features art that can be enjoyed through all the senses by all kinds of visitors. … The work chimes, rattles, purrs, emits music and poetry.”Matt Jatkola, creative services manager for the Mosesian Center, is the exhibition's co-curator. Director of exhibitions Aneleise Ruggles said the idea for “Please Touch The Art” began more than three years ago as she sought ways to “increase accessibility to visual arts” at the Center.
