Peabody Essex Museum Hoffman Exhibition Tactile Reproduction

Date:

October 2019

PAC was delighted to collaborate with the team at the Peabody Essex Museum to develop a guided tactile reproduction of Morning Mist, an abstract painting featured in the Hans Hofmann: The Nature of Abstraction exhibition. PAC in collaboration with J.J. Hunt, long-time friend, and seasoned describer, authored and recorded the guided visual description of the painting, in addition to working with the museum team on the design and development of the physical installation. The tactile reproduction was the first in the museum's history, marking an important milestone in the museum's commitment to inclusive design and accessibility.
