A new initiative of the National Gallery and Graphya Foundation expands the opportunity of more and more lovers of Bulgarian art to touch its heights. Kvadrat 500 is opening a special exposition for the visually impaired people, entitled ‘Touch the Gallery’. It is located in the hall next to the bookstore. Paintings adapted on tactile cards with audio descriptions in Bulgarian and English are on display. Four of the masterpieces from the national collection are presented: ‘Self-portrait’ by Zahari Zograf, ‘Rachenitsa Dance’ by Ivan Mrkvička, ‘Erma River near Tran’ by Nikola Petrov, and ‘Harvest in Chepino’ by Ivan Angelov.

Tactile cards with audio descriptions present four of the most valuable sculptures: ‘Mother’ by Ivan Lazarov, in the central foyer; ‘Mother and Child’ by Kiril Shivarov, in Hall 11; ‘On Leave’ by Angel Spasov, in Hall 12, and ‘Spirit and Matter’ by Andrey Nikolov, in Hall 13.
