Entrances + Restrooms
DePaul Art Museum is a street-level, storefront museum space [map]. To the left of the entrance there’s a small alley that allows temporary parking for loading and unloading within 15 feet of the entrance. The front entrance consists of two separate glass doors that are both wheelchair accessible. There is also an elevator that gives access to the second floor gallery and event space where the event will be held.
DPAM also has accessible and gender neutral restrooms, with entrances and stalls that are wheelchair accessible.
As mentioned, the reading and discussion will take place in the second floor event space. Chairs will be set up in rows facing the panel of speakers. Accessibility seating will be marked and reserved for those who need easy and unobstructed access to a seating space that is comfortable for mobility devices such as wheelchairs and walkers. Also, if ASL interpreters are requested for the event, there will be seating marked and reserved for those attendees. The event takes place in the afternoon, so the space will likely be lighted with a combination of natural light and fluorescent, track lighting.
We also welcome you to make yourself comfortable in the space–feel free to move around, stand, sit, grab snacks, and visit the restroom as needed. Additionally, if you need to step out of the space to take a break for any reason, the second floor gallery can serve as a low-sensory space.
