Access and Adaptations in Public Art Destinations

by Elise Schaffer

Public arts organizations in the United States have a legal obligation to be physically accessible for people with disabilities to be ADA compliant. However, how does that apply to public art destinations, specifically those in natural settings? The purpose of this research is to determine how public art destinations can become more accessible and create an equal experience for people with disabilities while remaining specific to the general meaning and design of the artwork.
