    Jul 2

    Announcing the Blind Telephone Network 2024 program

    The Blind Telephone network, originally founded by blind veterans, now is pleased to welcome all blind and low vision folks to join in phone calls will be held on Tuesday and Thursday of each week.

    Tuesdays programs are what we call chit chat and chew the fat. During these sessions, most topics are acceptable; however, we refrain from discussing politics and religion. Prayer requests are acceptable, but will not be done during the call. This is a time for socializing, and sharing our experiences with blindness, in order to help others develop independence and self-confidence.

    On Thursdays, we emphasize education, travel, technology, history, entertainment, and innovative role-models, etc.. These sessions will feature presenters on such topics as: Lewis and Clark's expedition, Mt. Rushmore, railroad history and the mob museum in Las Vegas, Nevada.We encourage suggestions for topics or locations from our participants.

    All sessions last for one (1) hour and start on time.

    The call in number is: 605-475-5620, and the access code is: 3789127#. If you plan to save these numbers in your contacts, I recommend inserting two (2) commas between the main number and the access code.

    Those wishing to receive an e-mail reminder for upcoming sessions or links provided by the presenter, should:

    Send an e-mail to Doc Eudaly at deteacha@sbcglobal.net. Please put your full name, phone number, and email address in the body of your e-mail.

    Calls for 2024 will begin on Tuesday, January 9.

    For Thursday, January 11, our initial program will be on the FDR Memorial in Washington, DC.  We hope to hear you on these free telephone calls, where you can both learn and contribute

  • Access Day: Japanese Prints in Transition at the Legion of Honor (in-person)

    Access Day: Japanese Prints in Transition at the Legion of Honor (in-person)


    Jul 15

    Visit the Legion of Honor on a day the museum is closed to the public! Complimentary admission by registration for people with disabilities and their guests to see the Japanese Prints exhibition between 9:30 am and 2:30 pm.

    Enjoy free admission and accessible features, including:

    • Extra Blue Zone spaces close to the museum
    • Parking maps and public transportation information
    • Extra seating inside and outside the exhibition
    • Large print editions of the exhibition labels

    About the Exhibition

    In 1868 Japan’s shogun was overthrown, marking the end of feudal military rule and ushering in the Meiji era (1868–1912), a period of modernization and exchange with other nations. As Japan’s society shifted, so too did its print culture. The delicately colored ukiyo-e (floating world woodblock prints) of actors, courtesans, and scenic views that had flourished for over a century were replaced with brightly colored images of Western architecture, technology, Victorian fashions and customs, and modern military warfare. This two-part exhibition (the floating world and the modern world) highlights this stylistic transition and the work of one artist, Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, who successfully spanned them both. His distinctive, sometimes eccentric, images serve as a link between the two eras.

    Mrs. Doubtfire: Musical with Audio Description (in-person)


    Jul 21

    Orpheum Theatre,
    1192 Market St. San Francisco

    Everyone’s favorite Scottish nanny is headed to San Francisco! Rob McClure will reprise his Tony-nominated Broadway performance alongside co-star (and real wife!) Maggie Lakis in this internationally acclaimed hit musical critics call “wonderful, heart-warming, and laugh-out-loud funny” (Manchester Evening News) and “a feel-good, family-friendly comedy that delivers” (The Hollywood Reporter). Based on the beloved film and directed by four-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Zaks, Mrs. Doubtfire tells the hysterical and heartfelt story of an out-of-work actor who will do anything for his kids. It’s “the lovable, big-hearted musical comedy we need right now,” raves the Chicago Tribune, “one that proves we’re better together.”

    More information about Mrs. Doubtfire. The show runtime is 2 hours and 35 minutes with one intermission.

    To purchase a ticket and reserve a listening device for the audio described portion of the performance, call Audience Services at 888-746-1799.

    Announcing the Fully Tactile Art Exhibition, coming to San Francisco this July! This free to the public exhibition curated by Ian Buchanan, Ben Warner, and Jerry Kuns in collaboration with numerous Bay Area Artists, explores the ways in which art can be experienced by our various senses!

    Are you sometimes disappointed by art being hidden behind glass? Have you ever wanted a more engaging interaction with the materials of art? Do you wish to explore artistic creations with more than just your eyes? Then this exhibition is for you!

    Come immerse yourself in the sounds and the emotions of poetry, feel the dance of wood grain of a Douglas fir sculpture, run your fingers through the fibers of textiles, let your hands “see” the intricacies of ceramic works, and lose yourself in a forest of felt.

    Let’s explore how smell, touch and sound can deepen our arts interactions.

    Held at the end of July 2024, this five day, free exhibition includes over a dozen artists that draw inspiration from the question - how can art be experienced beyond sight?

    Where: Jettison Creative @ 47 Jeff Adachi Way, San Francisco

    We would be happy to organize tours of the event if you have a group or an organization that is interested in experiencing Fully Tactile Art Exhibition.

    If there is anyone that you know who supports arts and accessibility and would be interested in this project please do not hesitate to share this with them or contact us at fully.tactile.art.exhibition@gmail.com

    Date and Times: July 24 through July 28, Wednesday to Friday 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm, Saturday & Sunday noon to 4:00 pm

    Announcing the Fully Tactile Art Exhibition, coming to San Francisco this July! This free to the public exhibition curated by Ian Buchanan, Ben Warner, and Jerry Kuns in collaboration with numerous Bay Area Artists, explores the ways in which art can be experienced by our various senses!

    Are you sometimes disappointed by art being hidden behind glass? Have you ever wanted a more engaging interaction with the materials of art? Do you wish to explore artistic creations with more than just your eyes? Then this exhibition is for you!

    Come immerse yourself in the sounds and the emotions of poetry, feel the dance of wood grain of a Douglas fir sculpture, run your fingers through the fibers of textiles, let your hands “see” the intricacies of ceramic works, and lose yourself in a forest of felt.

    Let’s explore how smell, touch and sound can deepen our arts interactions.

    Virtual Access Day At FAMSF with Audio Description (online)


    Jul 29

    The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF) will have a Virtual Access Day for Japanese Prints in Transition: From the Floating World to the Modern World on Monday July 29. A descriptive docent presentation takes places at 11:30 am. (There is also a general audience tour that goes into the history of the prints at 10:00 am)

    Register for the FAMSF Japanese Prints highly descriptive tour.

    Get more information on the FAMSF Japanese Prints virtual tours or email accessday@famsf.org.

    About the exhibition

    In 1868 Japan’s shogun was overthrown, marking the end of feudal military rule and ushering in the Meiji era (1868–1912), a period of modernization and exchange with other nations. As Japan’s society shifted, so too did its print culture. The delicately colored ukiyo-e (floating world woodblock prints) of actors, courtesans, and scenic views that had flourished for over a century were replaced with brightly colored images of Western architecture, technology, Victorian fashions and customs, and modern military warfare. This two-part exhibition (the floating world and the modern world) highlights this stylistic transition and the work of one artist, Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, who successfully spanned them both. His distinctive, sometimes eccentric, images serve as a link between the two eras.

    Announcing the Blind Telephone Network 2024 program

    The Blind Telephone network, originally founded by blind veterans, now is pleased to welcome all blind and low vision folks to join in phone calls will be held on Tuesday and Thursday of each week.

    Tuesdays programs are what we call chit chat and chew the fat. During these sessions, most topics are acceptable; however, we refrain from discussing politics and religion. Prayer requests are acceptable, but will not be done during the call. This is a time for socializing, and sharing our experiences with blindness, in order to help others develop independence and self-confidence.

    On Thursdays, we emphasize education, travel, technology, history, entertainment, and innovative role-models, etc.. These sessions will feature presenters on such topics as: Lewis and Clark's expedition, Mt. Rushmore, railroad history and the mob museum in Las Vegas, Nevada.We encourage suggestions for topics or locations from our participants.

    All sessions last for one (1) hour and start on time.

    The call in number is: 605-475-5620, and the access code is: 3789127#. If you plan to save these numbers in your contacts, I recommend inserting two (2) commas between the main number and the access code.

    Those wishing to receive an e-mail reminder for upcoming sessions or links provided by the presenter, should:

    Send an e-mail to Doc Eudaly at deteacha@sbcglobal.net. Please put your full name, phone number, and email address in the body of your e-mail.

    Calls for 2024 will begin on Tuesday, January 9.

    For Thursday, January 11, our initial program will be on the FDR Memorial in Washington, DC.  We hope to hear you on these free telephone calls, where you can both learn and contribute

    On behalf of the founding members,

    Douglas “Doc” Eudaly, PH,D
