Since its inception in 1974, Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center has presented visual art, film, video, music, performance, and literature from around the world to Western New York audiences. On January 14, 2006, the artist-run non-profit organization opened its new exhibition space, media arts screening/performance facilities, and offices as a tenant of Babeville.
As designed by the Buffalo firm Architectural Resources in coordination with Flynn Battaglia, Hallwalls’ layout pays tribute to the building’s original design while at the same time evoking an innovative, contemporary feel. Like all of Babeville, and in keeping with the mission of Hallwalls, it was created by artists with artists in mind.
Day after day, week after week, there’s always something happening here, and all events are open to the public.
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.
