Accessible Art Works (AAW) Program:
The Huntsville Museum of Art is committed to advancing an inclusive space and community by creating and implementing accessibility initiatives through the Accessible Art Works (AAW) program. We believe art and public spaces should be accessible to all individuals of all abilities. We are pleased to offer the Accessible Art Works free of charge to participants and a companion, thanks to a generous grant from the Lowe Foundation and a partnership with the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind (AIDB).
