St. Augustine offers a number of ways to experience art and history—one of those is through touch.
With the development of tactile displays and art exhibits, some of the Ancient City’s best features become accessible to the blind and visually impaired. Enjoy the rich texture of St. Augustine’s culture at these hands-on exhibits:
Vilano Beach Nature Boardwalk
Visually vibrant and tactilely delightful, this series of waterfront mosaics bring to life the environment they depict. Created by the Clay Club of the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind (FSDB), visitors are invited to touch the ripple of the water or the scale pattern of a fish at this outdoor exhibit. First Street, Vilano Beach, Florida
