    How could the University of Michigan's Museum of Art further embrace efforts of representation and inclusivity? While audio tours have become a popular contribution to museum experiences, my embossed map offers visually impaired visitors to navigate and experience UMMA's Unsettling Histories exhibition in a refreshing and engaging way. This embossed map guides users through the exhibit using braille and a variety of distinguishable 3D patterns representative of important objects in the space. Alongside the map is a companion booklet equipped with braille which lists each of the pieces in the exhibit. Important pieces are highlighted with an embossed page of the artworks' textures and forms, allowing visitors to "feel" what is in front of them. Thank you to UMMA for working with students on these important initiatives for inclusivity!
