It is all about inclusion at the ongoing exhibition at National Museum in Delhi
June 1, 2018
Everybody enjoys art. But how can a blind person or someone with low vision explore the beautiful world of art? Well, it is not impossible anymore. Thanks to the National Museum in New Delhi!
The museum is currently hosting the exhibition India and the World: A History in Nine Stories. This is indeed one-of-its-kind exhibition in order to promote inclusion.
More than 200 art works from across the world are showcased at the event. All the art works will be given a detailed description in Braille. There will also be a special audio guide to mention details about each art work. This will help blind art lovers to explore and venture more into the world of art!
Many famous works from renowned museums and private collections from across the world are brought in for the exhibition. Works from British Museum in London are also there!
Officials who are organising the exhibition said that blind people also deserve to venture into the world of art just like anyone else. Since the museum has more than 2 lakh pieces, it is hard to provide Braille for all of it. Hence, they have selected renowned pieces for which the information can be provided in Braille.
