The North Entrance is closest to the front desk and galleries. This entrance has a drop-off loop that is ideal for passenger and bus drop offs. The North parking lot has multiple accessible parking spaces. 

Groups and school groups should be dropped off at the North entrance.

The South Entrance is also wheelchair accessible. The South parking lot has multiple accessible parking spaces. This entrance is closest to the security office. 

The Art School Entrance is also located on the south side of the building and is ideal if one has a class to attend in that hallway.
