Allen Smith, often described as one of America’s most talented garden designers, is the product of five generations of southern nurserymen. Mr. Smith’s family imbued him at an early age with an appreciation and love of the land. Part of Smith’s life mission is to share his knowledge and enthusiasm for design and beauty. His generosity of spirit has produced a significant body of accessible work for the public. His portfolio includes diverse projects: plantations, townhomes, campuses, golf courses, new town developments, and rooftop gardens.

The Huntsville Museum of Art
The Huntsville Museum of Art is excited to announce the Accessible Art Works (AAW), a program developed by the Education Department in collaboration with people with disabilities. To date, AAW comprises two programs - one for people with vision impairment, low vision and blind, the other is specific to Deaf/Hard of Hearing. Each session will allow an assistant or companion to attend with the workshop participant. The Accessible Art Program gives one the opportunity to experience a docent led private tour of specific art pieces from a current exhibit, followed by an art making session led by a trained instructor. Accessible Art Works sessions are offered on a monthly basis year round. The sessions for the Blind/Low Vision will be verbally descriptive and contain tactile components. The Deaf/Hard of Hearing session will have an ASL Qualified Interpreter during the tour and the art making as well. We are pleased to offer the Accessible Art Workshop free of charge to participants and a companion thanks to a generous grant from the Lowe Foundation and a partnership with the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind (AIDB). It is strongly recommended that attendees pre-register for each session as they fill up quickly. Sign up online or by contacting Candace Bean, Education Associate at cbean@hsvmuseum.org or 256-535-4350 ext. 223 to participate in the session or to learn more. The sessions meet from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Lunch is scheduled between 12:00-12:30 p.m. after each session. The HMA is committed to advancing a diverse and inclusive space and community by creating and implementing accessibility initiatives. We believe art and public spaces should be accessible to all. AAW represents an AAW-some opportunity to support this objective. Check back soon for upcoming art sessions!
