This print is a Braille translation describing Constantin Brancusi’s Sculpture for the Blind written by artist Lenka Clayton. It belongs to Clayton’s collaborative project with The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, PA, intended to widen the accessibility of Constantin Brancusi’s iconic sculpture in a new and poetic manner. The print was Braille–pressed at the National Braille Press in Boston, and hand letter–pressed in Pittsburgh. Clayton’s work is held in many public and private collections, including The Fabric Workshop and Museum, The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Blanton Museum, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2014, Clayton was presented with a Carol R. Brown Award for Creative Achievement.
