Opening Wednesday, May 15th, from 6PM - 8PM
Join us for “Creating Legacy: Furthering the Art of Dance Through the Art of Disability,” an artist talk featuring 2019 UIC 3Arts fellow Ginger Lane.
Ginger Lane began her dance training in Chicago with Edna McRae, Erik Braun, John Kriza, Bentley-Stone, and Walter Camryn. Using a wheelchair since 1984, Ginger has collaborated and performed with the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, and for ten years was a member of Dance>Detour, a company of dancers with and without disabilities. She has been performing, choreographing, and conducting workshops with MOMENTA since 2003. In 2000 she was named one of “100 Women Making a Difference” in Today’s Chicago Woman magazine. Since 2008, as Coordinator of the Arts & Culture Project at Access Living, Ginger has produced the physically integrated dance concert Counter Balance for the past eight years.
Real-Time Captioning (CART), ASL, and Audio Description are provided for this event.
Gallery 400 is located on the first level of the Art & Exhibition Hall building with a push-button accessible door and can be accessed by a set of stairs with a railing or an elevator (Level 1R). If there are any barriers to entry on the day of the event, we will post updates on our social media channels.
There are two all-gender restrooms located on the same floor as Gallery 400. While the restrooms are accessible to wheelchair users, the door to the restroom is not. Visitors who use wheelchairs can request help with opening and closing the restroom doors by asking any Gallery 400 staff member, as they are trained in Personal Assistance.
The entrance to the building is located in a turn-around where visitors may be dropped off right outside the main door. The closest UIC public parking lot is the Harrison Street Parking Structure. Further information regarding parking on campus can be found at UIC Parking Services. Motorist assistance is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by calling 312.355.0555.
Other accessibility services are available upon request and may be arranged by contacting the gallery at 312-996-6114 or emailing Megan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
