There is a push button to automatically open one set of the doors to the Cultural Center, but sometimes it is broken. (Use security number above to call for assistance). To get to the CVA gallery, you can take the stairs up to the second floor OR use the elevators. The elevators are located to your right by the restrooms. Press 2 for the 2nd floor. The Gallery is to your left as you exit the elevators. If coming up the stairs, the Gallery will be diagonally to your right.
Inside the Gallery Space:
The CVA Gallery can be accessed by wheelchair. There is a set of double doors you go through to get into the gallery space and one of them is always propped open when the gallery is open. The gallery does not have any stairs or inclines and we make sure to leave 36" of space around art objects if they are in the middle of the space.
If you are blind or low-vision you can request to touch the art and we may be able to find some pieces that would be appropriate to handle.
