  1. Long The painting is affixed at its four corners, centered against a larger, roughly textured tan surface. The two fruits are set against a light background, casting mauve shadows against an implied surface. Both the fruits themselves and their leaves share various shades of sage green and pale orange, while the base of the fruits is a more vivid salmon red. At the bottom right corner of the painting appears the date "2017/05/16" in small numerals.

About the event

Mika Horibuchi and MCA Artist Guide James Jankowiak lead visitors on an interactive touch tour of Horibuchi's work, which explores the relationship between illusion and reality and how we perceive the physical world around us. This public tour emphasizes multisensory engagement and verbal description for people who are blind or have low vision, but is open to all visitors.

Live interpretation events are organized by Rosie May, Associate Director of Interpretation and Visitor Research, and Meagan Burger, Manager of Interpretation.
