RAM is pleased to announce the new The Touch Gallery! So often in museums, the warning “Please don’t touch the art” bombards visitors. This, of course, is a precaution to protect the art objects yet it deprives us of exploring surfaces and learning about materials, techniques and artistic intent with one of our most important sensory tools, our sense of touch. With The Touch gallery, located on the main floor, we will have on display an assortment of real art sculptures and a painting that are created with various materials like bronze, carved wood, marble, resin and acrylic paint that visitors, especially children, will be encouraged to explore with their hands. We hope you’ll have a chance to drop in and feel it.
