Remote Vibrant Verbal Description Tour: Freak Power

May 20, 2021

Every month, Poster House offers Vibrant Verbal Description Tours specifically for the low vision and blind community. Explore one of the museum’s shows with an experienced educator trained in the art of verbal description and learn more about the history of printed posters.

In order to reach a wide, art-loving audience around the world, we offer our description tours online through teleconference. These tours are led by our Chief Curator, allowing you intimate access to the items in our current shows.

This tour will focus on Freak Power, an exhibition of silkscreen posters and photographs documenting Hunter S. Thompson’s bid for sheriff of Aspen and the grassroots political movement that evolved out of those efforts.

Please email access@posterhouse.org or call 917.722.2439 x413 by May 18th to sign up for this event. You will be emailed poster images for reference as well as information about accessing the teleconference the morning of the virtual tour.

Tours start promptly and will last approximately 90 minutes with questions.

For a complete list of our Access Tours, click the Access filter at the top of our Events page, call 917.722.2439 x413 or email access@posterhouse.org. Poster House will also strive to accommodate any outside accessibility tour requests given two week’s notice.
