ADA Month: Learning About Art in ASL Read More
In celebration of ADA Month and anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, we’re highlighting initiatives at the Jewish Museum that make our institution accessible to all.
The Jewish Museum offers a number of free programs and services for visitors in the Deaf community. Tours of the Museum’s exhibitions and collection in American Sign Language (ASL) provide a space for visitors to connect and celebrate art and Deaf culture. These tours are regularly led by Alexandria Wailes, a Deaf educator, actress, dancer, and ASL consultant who has been facilitating programs at the Jewish Museum since 2013.https://medium.com/media/47aca800f8da3824af72c8e42f74cd64/hrefhttps://medium.com/media/7604709d62dad3be0a0b906c900be11f/href
