Artist Shannon Finnegan leads a discussion about her work, disability culture, and access.
Through her art practice, Finnegan thinks about how we can move towards better and more nuanced approaches to access. Instead of focusing on compliance and doing the minimum, what if we approach access creatively and generously, centering disability culture? How do we make spaces and experiences that disabled people not only can access but want to access?

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Street parking is limited. The garage directly across 15th Street is $7 on weekends. The museum is walking distance from Union Station and the 16th Street Free Mall Ride.
Is MCA Denver wheelchair accessible?
Yes! We have a huge elevator complete with a bench for resting. We also have a wheelchair you can reserve if you find you need a bit more support.
What if I'm thirsty before or during the event?
Our rooftop cafe will be open all day! You're welcome to grab a drink before the talk begins and bring it down to the Whole Room.
Can I check out the galleries after the talk?
Yes! The first floor and second floor galleries will be open until 5pm. Stacey Steers: Edge of Alchemy will be closed to accomodate the talk, but you can also bring your talk ticket back for free admission to the museum within a month after the talk.
