Art-Reach Gala at the Franklin Institute
Art-Reach enriches lives by connecting underserved audiences with cultural experiences so that they may enjoy and benefit from the transformative power of the arts. Last month they had a gala at the Franklin Institute and my friend Joshua Torrisi sent me a few photos of the event.

The night was filled with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, an award ceremony and a fully accessible verbal description tour of The Brain Exhibit to help give guests a sense for how low-vision and blind individuals can experience exhibits thanks to Art Reach. They also featured an exciting pop-up performance from the Pennsylvania Ballet!
