On your next visit to #fwmoa, please don't touch the artworks but do pay close attention to the implied or visual texture. How do artists activate our sense of touch? Find out in this #arttermtuesday on texture.
Every day we get visitors who let us know how badly they want to touch the artwork but know they shouldn’t.

Artists choose different materials to express different things, including how something might feel. Read on to learn how to discover texture in artworks without touching them!
