Join us at the MFA’s first ASL Night, a celebration of Deaf culture welcoming members of the Deaf community and friends! The evening highlights and features the art, language, and culture of the community. Coinciding with Deaf Awareness Month, the program includes American Sign Language tours and spotlight talks, performances, art-making activities, and more.
Presented in partnership with DEAF, Inc and Boston Children’s Hospital Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program.
