The theme of ‘freedom’ was chosen as a conceptual device that is linked with strong emotional reactions. The challenge was to explore the theme of freedom with few visual cues. Drums and music from around the world were chosen, the intent being to create a traveling exhibition that could be taken to schools and museums. This project highlights the need for additional museum programs for visually impaired visitors and demonstrates that there is indeed a disparity between visitor experiences that can be corrected by creating more hands-on exhibits and displays. By designing and creating a museum exhibition that accommodates both the visually impaired and the sighted, the essential museum experience that evokes wonder and curiosity can be enjoyed by all visitors.
