Elsewhere makes every effort to accommodate visitors and artists with disabilities, but our historic building in Downtown Greensboro has certain limitations. 

The first floor of the museum (including main studios, public and community spaces, kitchen, convertible residential living space) is accessible to all and ADA** compliant. We do not currently have an elevator; therefore the second and third floors are not accessible to everyone.

Museum Visitors:

  • The first floor has handicap accessible bathrooms, aisles, entries, and exit-ways.
  • Primary museum exhibitions and event programming exist on the first floor.

Artists-in-Residence:

  • Applicants can optionally note their access needs on the residency application. This information does not go into their applicant review.
  • We work with our board and community members to provide accessible housing if artists with special needs can’t live on-site.
  • In 2015, a commissioned artist who is visually impaired had an assistant during his residency to assist with needs and was provided a tailored orientation to Elsewhere upon arrival.
  • All fellowship artists installing work in the second or third floors are asked to create an addendum on the first floor during exhibitions.
  • All artists-in-residence are provided with an Equity Orientation document and asked to sign a Community Guidelines Agreement.

For questions or concerns regarding accessibility, please contact Emily Ensminger, Program Curator at production@goelsewhere.org or at 336.907.3271.
