Description:

Each year, the Queens Museum provides unique programs for thousands of children and adults with varying physical, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive abilities across the New York City area. ArtAccess also provides outreach services to members of our community who are in special situations, such as those who are homebound, suffering from extended illness, incarcerated, or in foster care.

Piloted in 1983 as Please Touch to provide art education for people with visual impairments, ArtAccess has grown into a nationally replicated model designed to allow audiences of all abilities to enjoy a personal connection to art and cultural institutions.
