ADA 25 FOR 25 CULTURAL ACCESS PROJECT
As a part of the ADA 25 for 25 Cultural Access Project, the Chicago Design Museum plans to integrate accessible materials for visitors who are blind/low vision into their 2015 exhibit, New Horizons, particularly investigating using architectural models for a tactile experience, creating a verbal description audio guide, and having large type materials available for guests. These efforts would begin in 2015 with the New Horizons exhibit and using what they learn during the first attempt at implementation, they would revise and improve their offerings for their Spring 2016 exhibition.
