Description

A new project in Santiago, Chile is making the city's street art accessible to the blind for the first time ever. The city created tactile versions of outdoor artworks throughout so people with visual impairments can touch and feel the art.

The “Hands on the Wall” project has installed six miniature versions of murals on plaques throughout the city, which also include descriptions in Braille and audio guides.

Accessibility features are common in museums and galleries but rare for public art. The initiative is publicly funded and jointly organized by the Mu.Cho Association for Inclusive Culture and the Museum of Visual Arts in Santiago.
