Explore Various Senses During Speechless: Different by Design at the Dallas Museum of Art

This Sunday, head to the Dallas Museum of Art to explore their latest collaboration with the High Museum of Art! On November 10th, the two institutions will present “Speechless: Different by Design," an exhibition that merges research, aesthetics, and innovative design to explore the vast spectrum of sensory experiences, new approaches to accessibility, and modes of communication in a museum setting.

"Speechless: Different by Design" will debut new work by six leading and emerging international designers and design teams. These include Ini Archibong, Matt Checkowski, Misha Kahn, Steven and William Ladd, Laurie Haycock Makela, and Yuri Suzuki. All of the highlighted projects were informed by conversations with specialists from prominent academic and medical institutions.

Their new works create participatory environments in which senses are merged or substituted for one another—for instance, the sound will become visible—so that visitors can engage with their surroundings in new and unconventional ways. The exhibit will be curated by Sarah Schleuning, The Margot B. Perot Senior Curator of Decorative Arts and Design and Interim Chief Curator at the DMA.

Established in 1903, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is among the 10 largest art museums in the country and is distinguished by its commitment to research, innovation and public engagement. At the heart of the Museum and its programs is its global collection, which encompasses more than 24,000 works and spans 5,000 years of history, representing a full range of world cultures.

Located in the nation’s largest arts district, the Museum acts as a catalyst for community creativity, engaging people of all ages and backgrounds with a diverse spectrum of programming, from exhibitions and lectures to concerts, literary events, and dramatic and dance presentations. Since the Museum’s return to free general admission in 2013, the DMA has welcomed more 3.2 million visitors.

"Speechless: Different by Design" will remain on display through February 23, 2020. General admission is free. For more information, please visit the official Dallas Museum of Art website at
