Parking Info:

Free parking is available right in front of the Carl Van Vechten Gallery. The driveway is on Jackson Street and looks like a sidewalk. Additional parking is available behind the gallery; the entrance to that parking lot is on D.B. Todd, Jr., Blvd. Visitors parking in the lot behind the gallery should inform a Gallery Ambassador upon arrival. This is the best parking lot for visitors requiring wheelchair access; if this is the case, please call when you arrive or send a member of your group to the front entrance so that a Gallery Ambassador or member of staff can greet you and facilitate access. There is also a parking lot across Jackson Street, and there is a crosswalk linking the lot and the gallery.
