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
