The concert is a public program from the The Library Company of Philadelphia's exhibition, Common Touch: The Art of the Senses in the History of the Blind. Common Touch is a multimedia exhibition that looks at historical embossed and raised-letter documents for the visually impaired as a starting point for a multi-sensory exploration of the nature of perception.
