Though we may not be able to feel or hear the objects and scenes in a picture, artists often invite us to use a variety of our senses when we explore a work of art—encouraging us to imagine the textures, smells, and even tastes of what is depicted. The most effective way to receive information, of course, is to use all of our senses in harmony.
Free. No reservations required.
