An exhibition of Women Artists was my reason for stopping at The Art League of Long Island. It was yet another of their small, but exceptional showings. After viewing one of them, I am always glad that I had made the time to visit. Exhibitions are usually on both the lower and upper floors of the gallery. Besides the art works themselves, the bi-level space is welcoming.
Since 1953 - it's mission has been ""focused on enhancing Long Island Cultural Life by promoting the appreciation, practice and enjoyment of the visual arts."" (website) ""It is the oldest and largest non-profit visual arts organization of its kind on Long Island... with classes, exhibitions and special events...It has a full calendar of courses, programs and activities for artists of ages, their families and anyone interested in art. (brochure) It is open seven days a week, free of charge.
The lage building is easy to access. A large, paved parking lot has four handicapped spaces. The street-level, double-door entry has push button assist. A small entryway and another set of doors (also with push-button assist) gets one into the main area of the building.
To enter the exhibition gallery requires another set of double-glass doors. The gallery is the core of the building, with outer hallways around leading to the nine art studios that are located here.
If you need a place to rest, other than the benches in the gallery, I found a couch and some chairs in one of the corridors. Chairs seem to be readily available near the main entrance.
Single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restrooms can be found on both the main and second floors. Ask someone where they are, as I am not sure that I can tell you exactly where they are. I do know that they are in one of the corridors. There are no baby-changing stations.
The Art League of Long Island is an easily accessible, interesting, and no cost place to visit. Check their website to see all of their offerings.
As always, we at Destination:Accessible advise you to check a venue's website, www.artleagueli.org, when planning a visit, to ""know before you go."
