The next time your family comes to MOCA Jacksonville, ask the person at the front desk for a Tactile Bag. That's right, a Tactile Bag. This handy-dandy bag is filled with fun objects that can help you experience the artworks on view in the galleries not only with your eyes but also with your hands.
While you cannot touch the works of art in the gallery, you will be able wear a beret in front of Alex Katz's January, manipulate and feel the texture of bronze while viewing Joel Shapiro's Untitled sculpture (which is made from the same type of material), and play a game of “I Spy” with Ethan Murrow's mural Plethora while looking through binoculars. Don't forget to look up!
