Narrated by some of New York’s most beloved voices, "Mind's Eye: A Sensory Guide to the Guggenheim New York" was designed for the blind and low-vision communities and is illuminating for all. This eleven-episode guide to the New York’s landmark Guggenheim building takes you on a journey of the senses through a UNESCO World Heritage-designated architectural masterpiece.

Wherever you choose to listen, the "Mind’s Eye" podcast will transport you into the heart of New York City, and bring you from bustling Fifth Avenue into the glorious internal space of the museum. Rather than examining the building from an architectural perspective, each episode describes one sensory aspect of the space—sound, touch, light—creating a rich aural and physical experience: a new and quietly revolutionary way to explore the Guggenheim.
