Musee des Beaux-Arts
so cold the the blind man says
of the fierce looking statue

Musee des Beaux-Arts
blind but they need
more time, says the guide

Musee des Beaux-Arts
the blind man's fingers
all over the 1000 year old goddess

Musee des Beaux-Arts
the blind man asks if the goddess
in his hands is beautiful

Home to one of the best collections of fine art in France, the Lyon Musée des Beaux-Arts has a program every Saturday that gives those with special needs the chance to more fully appreciate and experience art. Events in upcoming months include a tactile tour, where visually impaired guests can touch statues and other pieces of art normally labeled 'Do Not Touch.' Tours are also given with sign-language interpreters for the hearing impaired.
