TOUCH St. Augustine is a community outreach initiative developed by the St. Augustine Art Association to enhance accessibility of the visual arts in St. Augustine, Florida, with Braille signage and audio guides.
These informational aids for the historic statuary, architectural landmarks and local artisan treasures build a better understanding of the history our nation’s oldest city and inspire a deeper appreciation for the artists’ handiwork, not only for the blind community but for everyone.
The individuals represented in these figurative works of art were instrumental in the founding, struggles and growth of St. Augustine over the centuries. Their heroism and creative spirit are reflected in the beauty and expressiveness of the sculptures and brought to life in their compelling stories soon to be available on this website and via cell phone.
Developed by the St. Augustine Art Association TOUCH St. Augustine is an expansion of the organization’s annual juried Tactile Art Show, an exhibit featuring all touchable art created by local artists with Braille signage prepared by students from Florida School for the Deaf and Blind.
