Ongoing Accessibility Efforts
All Museum labels are displayed at 16pt font or larger. We are happy to produce large print materials upon request. We apologize for this inconvenience, but due to our small staff size, we ask that you request large print materials or other additional accommodations at least a week in advance.
In an ongoing effort to improve accessibility, the Gadsden Arts Center & Museum welcomes visitors of all abilities to explore the galleries and is open to requests for programs that best suit your needs. Although we have a very small staff, we are committed to creating a welcoming and engaging environment for all, in an effort to work towards our mission of improving quality of life through art in our region. This includes an interest in partnering with groups to develop programs for specific audiences as needs and demands arise.
Gadsden Arts is working towards developing described tours for visitors with vision loss and exploring the possibilities of tactile objects, enhancing experiences for visitors with hearing loss through ASL and amplified sound tours, and developing tours for people with dementia and their caregivers.
If you are interested in getting involved with these efforts or would like to be the first to know about the programs as they become available, please contact Museum Educator, Sarah Black-Sadler at firstname.lastname@example.org or (850) 627-5023.
