Abstract

This Capstone Project contains an exhibition plan written for Kadist Art Foundation, a contemporary art museum located in the Mission District of San Francisco, California. The focus of this exhibition is to increase access for visitors who are blind or have low vision. While many art museums are providing private touch tours to visitors with visual impairments, this art exhibition plan seeks to integrate visual accessibility as a standard for exhibition planning. This is done through methods such as the inclusion of multisensory artwork and tactile aesthetics, and by making proper improvements to the structure of gallery spaces. This exhibition plan may be adapted for use by any organization wishing to provide better access to visitors who are visually impaired.

To download restricted works from off campus you must have a USF email address and use it to create an account for the repository.
