Eastern Edge Gallery is committed to creating a space that is as physically accessible as possible to all of our patrons and members of the arts community.  No entrances leading to the gallery have buttons to press to automatically open the doors and all require someone to physically (manually) open them. There is a ramp in the front of the building leading from the outside parking lot through a set of glass double doors (width of 71 inches). They lead into the main hallway of the building, where you will find the purple double doors (width of 64 inches) leading to Eastern Edge Gallery on your immediate right. The bathroom is just to the left of the hallway (width of 39 inches) down a slight ramp, and the doorways to the bathroom is 30 inches wide. The bathroom is a small space, approximately 6 feet by 5 feet – even less so with the toilet, sink, and swinging door taken into account).
