Borders Exhibition Sensory Adaptive Tour

November 11@10:00 am-10:30 am

The Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge will host a Sensory Tour of the BORDERS exhibit on November 11, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at the airplane near the USS Kidd on River Road in downtown Baton Rouge.

BORDERS is a 22-piece sculpture exhibition created by Icelandic artist Steinunn Thorarinsdottir that will remain in Baton Rouge until spring 2018. It is an interactive public artwork originally designed for the Dag Hammarskjold Plaza at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The work came to Baton Rouge through a partnership with the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge, the LSU Glassell Gallery, and Winnifred and Kevin Reilly, in conjunction with the 2017 Ebb & Flow Festival.

Sensory-friendly tours and performances are designed to create an arts experience that is welcoming to audiences with visual impairments, autism, or other disabilities that create sensory sensitivities. This Sensory Tour of the sculptural exhibit will include accommodations for visually and hearing impaired and is welcome to everyone of all sensibilities.

Join President/CEO Renee Chatelain, along with representatives from the Louisiana School for the Deaf and the Louisiana School for the Visually Impaired for a tour of the sculptural exhibit on the Riverfront.

The tour will involve some walking along the levee area and should last approximately 30 minutes. All audiences are welcome and the tour is free.
