Please join us for The Museum of Modern Art’s bimonthly program for individuals who are Deaf or hard of hearing. Each program includes a sign language–interpreted private gallery talk focusing on one of MoMA’s special exhibitions, along with a wine and cheese reception.

In March, we will explore the exhibition Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio. Del Toro’s film is an innovative reinterpretation of Carlo Collodi’s 1883 children’s novel The Adventures of Pinocchio, now set in Fascist-era Italy. Together we will discuss the craft and process behind the filmmaker’s first stop-motion animation film, with staff members from the departments of Film and Conservation.

5:00 p.m. – Check-in at the Lauder Building staff entrance at 11 W 53rd Street, east of the main lobby under the curved silver awning, with wine and cheese reception in the Hess Lounge

6:00 p.m. – Tour and gallery conversation with staff members from the departments of Film and Conservation.
