Encounters focus on providing meaningful and personal connections in the galleries at MAD through multi-sensory experiences. Designed to deepen visitor interaction and engagement with exhibitions on view, Encounters provide a platform for learning through interpretive exercises and activities. Encounters are part of MADactivates, a series of programs coordinated in conjunction with exhibitions.
