Service Animals

We welcome service animals and will accommodate them as necessary.

Sensory Accommodations

We play music in the store but are happy to turn it down or completely off if needed. The store features no brightly flashing or colored lights. Exhibitions in the A2AC Gallery may contain loud music or flashing colored lights. When this is the case, we will have notices posted on the exhibition’s landing page and on the gallery door. 

Other Accommodations

We are happy to provide reasonable accommodations that would make your time with us more comfortable. We also offer all our items online if coming into the store in person is not an option.
