Inclusive Multi-Sensory Exhibitions

#TheBlindExhibition Incorporates Bath & Body Works Scents

This year, to celebrate National White Cane Day—a day that promotes "the integration and autonomy of the blind and visually impaired in society"—Bath & Body Works Panama created #TheBlindExhibition.

Although art lovers are typically restricted to experiencing painting, sculptures and other creations with their eyes only, Bath & Body Works Panama invited artists to incorporate the scents and textures of its products into works of art for a more inclusive, multi-sensory experience. Unlike many art exhibitions, #TheBlindExhibition invited people to explore the various works of art through their sense of touch and smell.

In the spirit of inclusivity, the exhibit dedicated to the visually impaired featured works of art with descriptions printed in both English and Spanish, as well as Braille.
