A. To provide a center for contemporary art.
B. To recognize and serve a vital community artistic presence which is global
in its outlook, challenging in its ideas, pluralistic in its concerns, and
diverse in its expression. Hallwalls' twofold mission is to serve artists
by supporting the creation and presentation of new work in the visual, media,
performing, and literary arts, and to serve the public by making these works
available to audiences. We are dedicated in particular to work by artists
which challenges and extends the traditional boundaries of the various art
forms, and which is critically engaged with current issues in the arts and--through
the arts--in society. Finally, we believe that the right of freedom of expression
for artists, and for free access to their works by interested individuals,
must be protected as a fundamental and necessary condition of our mission.

Directions, Parking, and Accessibility
Free parking for Hallwalls events is usually available in our adjacent lot. Note that we share this lot with Babeville, and there may be occasions on which another event in the building
would cause the lot to be full or otherwise unavailable. In this case, it is often possible to find street parking on Delaware Avenue south of Tupper, or on South Elmwood Avenue.
Entrance to Hallwalls is through the glass stair tower addition on the south
façade of the rear Parish House. This entrance is fully wheelchair
accessible, with a new passenger elevator located just inside the lobby. All
Hallwalls facilities and adjacent restrooms are accessible, and assistive
listening devices are available by request.
