As a part of the core values statement of Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art (JCSM) Long Range Plan, we seek to be all inclusive and non-discriminatory of our diverse audiences. The museum is accessible, with a circular drop off point at the museum entrance, 16 van accessible parking spaces, automatic doors, accessible stalls and ADA compliant changing tables for families. Wheelchairs are available from the front desk upon request. Designated accessible seating is clearly identified in the museum auditorium, with directional signage in braille throughout the building. Exhibitions are designed wheelchair-accessible, not only for the physical space used but also in the label information presented with font choices and positioning on the wall. When audio enhances an exhibition, guests may activate sound clips through their mobile devices or a fixed transmitter. While most exhibitions are self-guided, small group tours are scheduled in advance with museum docents who are trained to tailor their conversations based on the needs of the guests. A new K-12 outreach program with the City of Auburn is in the early stages to bring art experiences to youth with special needs. In additional to the purely visual arts experiences offered on site, the JCSM programming schedule includes music, lectures, performances, and poetry readings for patrons with visual impairments to enjoy. The rear entrance to the museum has a ramp and elevator access. In the event of an emergency, fire alarms throughout the building give both visual and audible alerts to the visiting public and museum staff.
Information regarding accessible seating and parking for both graduating students and guests is included in the Office of the Registrar’s graduation information.
If you are planning to attend an event on campus and you need an American Sign Language interpreter or CART at the event, please notify the group hosting the event about your needs as soon as possible. The University will always do its best to fill interpreting or CART requests; however, it may be impossible to coordinate interpreters or CART request without reasonable notice.
