Please mark your calendars for our Annual General Meeting, which will be taking place at ace on Friday, December 13 at 7 PM.
ace is a community organization that is enriched by its community. To support that, we truly value the input of all those who choose to attend.
aceartinc. is not located in a fully accessible building. The public entrance, which is via 288 McDermot Avenue, (four steps up from the street) is at the top of a large flight of stairs. However, there is an alternative entrance at 290 McDermot Avenue. There is a step up from the street to the door and then 7 steps inside the lobby entrance. Here a passenger elevator (with a 2 foot, 8″ wide door) can take you to the second floor.
Once in ace, the galleries are spacious and simple to navigate.
The staff is very happy to assist in any way we can. Please call ahead (204 944 9763) to let us know of any special arrangements that would make your visit as comfortable as possible.
