Artistry strives to make our programs accessible for all patrons.
For visitors who have mobility disabilities
Parking: Accessible parking is available in all Bloomington Center for the Arts lots. The closest and most convenient accessible parking is in the lot on the west side of the building.
Public Wheelchairs: The Bloomington Center for the Arts has wheelchairs and one power scooter available for public use free of charge. Please inquire at the City Information Desk when you arrive.
Elevators: The Atrium Gallery and second-floor arts classrooms are accessible using the elevator just behind the City Information Desk in the Center for the Arts lobby.
Theater Seating: Both theaters in the Bloomington Center for the Arts have accessible wheelchair/scooter seating. The Schneider Theater also has a limited number of transfer seats available. Although the Black Box Theater has general admission seating, house staff will reserve accessible seating for patrons who request it. Please let us know when you purchase your tickets online or by phone that you require accessible seating. If you have questions or need further assistance, please call our box office at 952-563-8575.
Restrooms: All restrooms in the Bloomington Center for the Arts are fully accessible to patrons in wheelchairs. A private restroom is available on the main floor for patrons who require assistance.
For visitors who have hearing impairments
We offer assistive listening devices for all of our Schneider Theater perfomances free of charge. Devices may be obtained at the Will Call desk. Please be prepared to leave a driver's license or other valid ID as security.
American Sign Language (ASL) Interpretation: We offer one signed performance for every Artistry production as indicated by the symbol on our performance calendars. Please request the interpreter section when placing your ticket order. We are grateful to the Bloomington Lions Club for supporting ASL interpretation for our productions in the Black Box Theater.
For visitors who have vision impairments
Audio Description (AD) services: We offer AD services at one performance of each Artistry production as indicated by the symbol on our performance calendars. Please request this service when placing your ticket order. We are grateful to the Bloomington Lions Club for supporting AD services for our productions in the Black Box Theater.
