Reception Area

The Reception Area is directly across the hallway from the Wanda D. Ewing Gallery. There is a desk, 42 ½ inches tall, large windows facing 24th Street, a small library, and four chairs surrounding a coffee table. It is a great place to stop and ask questions, get more information, chat with some friendly folks, etc.

The Union for Contemporary Art is committed to removing barriers to the arts by providing programs, facilities, and services that are accessible to everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual identity, income level, age, physicality, or disability.

Because service to our community sits at the core of The Union’s mission and values, supporting the diverse needs of our stakeholders is central to our efforts at fostering a culture of equity and inclusion.

If you are planning a visit, and have any questions or needs, we encourage you to communicate with us in advance. Union staff will make accommodations, to the extent possible, to ensure that our programs and building are welcoming and supportive for all.

We are currently in the process of a thorough examination of accessibility within our organization, programming, events, and space. Our goals include, but are not limited to:

  • Conducting an accessibility audit of our facilities, programming, processes, and communications
  • Identifying areas where improvement is needed, and implementing changes
  • Developing a detailed and comprehensive Union Accessibility Guide, made available on our website
  • Filming a video walk-through of our building, exterior paths of travel, and program areas
  • Continually pursuing opportunities to make all aspects of our work and programming fully open and accessible to all

Realizing that accessibility is an ongoing process, we welcome any constructive feedback or suggestions in order to create a space that is more inclusive.

Please direct any questions, suggestions, or accessibility accommodation requests to The Union’s Events + Project Manager, Kat Fackler (

A Note on the UserWay Digital Accessibility Widget

In October 2022, The Union removed the UserWay widget from our site after using the feature for approximately one year. We removed the widget after we became aware that the tool, which is designed to improve the general accessibility of a webpage, can actually do the opposite and inhibit the functioning of other accessibility tools (like screen readers).

In its absence, we are currently pursuing a full, third-party accessibility audit of our site to identify and fix any features that fail to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
