SAM Touch Collection
“Art has evolved to such great possibilities instead of the traditional works like paintings and sculptures. It is very meaningful to start the SAM Touch Collection as it will certainly bring visually impaired people closer to art. The tour was so well planned and all of us had a fun time interacting with adaptations of the original artworks.”
– PENNY CHONG, Resource Teacher of visually impaired students at Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary School
The SAM Touch Collection is an initiative to extend the contemporary art experience to audiences of all backgrounds and abilities. A portable and interactive collection of artwork adaptations, the SAM Touch Collection is specifically developed to travel and engage with the visually-impaired community.
The works in the SAM Touch Collection are based on artworks by Singaporean artists in the museum’s collection, especially those which relate to historical, cultural and social aspects of Singapore. To cater to the needs of the visually-impaired community, the artwork adaptations are accompanied by supplementary resources and materials, such as audio guides and reproductions of finer artwork details to enhance interaction and understanding.
