Where We Stand

Where We Stand

Here at the CAC, we believe that art and the creative process belong to all people. The CAC offers a variety of services and accommodations to ensure visitors of all abilities have meaningful access to the exhibitions and programs.

The CAC is committed to facilitating the usability of this website for people with disabilities. We are currently in consultation to achieve full accessibility for our website. We appreciate your understanding as we work toward this goal. If you have feedback or questions about this effort, or any of our accessibility services, please contact Shawnee Turner.


Accessible parking is available at the 21C valet, which is located on Walnut, right around the corner from the CAC's 6th Street entrance. Please notify the valet and 21C front desk staff that you are there for CAC accessible parking to receive the $10 rate.

Entry and General Navigation

The CAC's entrance is located at street level, in the middle of the building on 6th Street. The entrance has an automatic door. You will enter the glass doors and turn right, moving through another set of glass doors. Please proceed to the front desk to check-in.

Accessible restrooms are located on all floors except the lobby.  All floors are accessible via elevators. There are two elevators available to visitors. A large elevator is located to the left of the visitor services desk and offers access to all gallery floors. Another smaller elevator is located to the right in the lobby and offers access to all gallery floors and the lower level lobby.

Service dogs and ponies are welcome. A service animal is defined as any animal that has been trained to do work or performs tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability.
