The Art Center is open during the Main Library construction!

Please note that beginning March 1 and through June, access to the Palo Alto Art Center will be reduced due to the Main Library construction. The Main Entrance to the Art Center will not be accessible during this time, nor will be the driveway in front of the Main Entrance. The only available entrances to the Center are at the Newell Road side of the building, or through the Sculpture Garden (please see map).

Parking will still be available in the back parking lot (accessible only from Embarcadero Road), along Embarcadero Road, and at the lot at the corner of Newell and Hopkins. Short-term parking (15 minutes) is available at the Newell side of the building. Please see map for details.

We look forward to opening the beautiful new Art Center/Main Library campus, with enhanced wayfinding, accessibility, and parking for pedestrians, bikes, and vehicles!
