Statement of Accessibility and Inclusion

ICP is committed to offering space and programs that are accessible to all audiences. We believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are values that are integral to offering an open forum for dialogue around photography and visual culture that is open to all. Through this lens, we hope to engage, educate, and inspire our visitors, students, and community at large. 


In commitment to increased safety precautions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of our accessibility programming has been temporarily suspended. Check back here for updated information.

Caregivers of visitors with disabilities will be admitted for free. For a full list of admissions information, see
