Accessibility

Meredith College Galleries works to ensure our exhibitions, programming, and facilities are accessible to all visitors. We are working with Arts Access and Disability Services, on-campus, to provide staff training and ensure each exhibition and event is universally designed. Our Galleries are committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion.

If possible, please allow two weeks for fulfilling requests for audio-described or ASL-translated tours of current exhibitions.

For further information or to request accommodations, please contact Molly Hull or call 919-760-8414 .
