What is ArtAccess?

Since 1983, ArtAccess initiatives at the Queens Museum have provided programming for children, teens, and adults with disabilities and advanced accessibility initiatives throughout the museum. ArtAccess programs promote social inclusion and self-determination, encourage experimentation and creative expression and provide layers of multisensory experiences.
