There is a free parking lot in the alley off Dewey Street behind the Athenaeum Art Center between Julian Avenue and Kearney Avenue available for use by students. There is also ample free street parking on Julian Avenue that is untimed. A limited number of handicapped spots are available in front of the entrance to the Bread & Salt building. 


Access to the Athenaeum Art Center at Bread & Salt

We would like to remind everyone that the main/front entrance to the Athenaeum Art Center is through the lobby of the Bread & Salt building off Julian Avenue. Parking on the streets in the surrounding neighborhood is free and untimed and there are handicapped spots on Julian Avenue near this front entrance. For the time being, there is still a parking lot in the alley off Dewey Street behind the building that is sometimes available. However, the back door/emergency exit from the AAC to the alley needs to remained locked for security purposes, so please do not plan to enter the AAC this way. If, for some reason you get locked out of class, we have installed a doorbell at each door that will ring inside the AAC. We understand that using the Julian Street main entrance instead of the back door to enter the school may be new for you, so we appreciate your flexibility and patience.


AAC: Discover Logan Heights!

The next time you are at our Athenaeum Art Center location in Logan Heights, make a day out of it. We are within walking distance to restaurants, shops, coffee shops, and most importantly, Chicano Park.


Due to its association with the Chicano Civil Rights Movement since the 1970s, Chicano Park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and in 2017 was designated a National Historic landmark.  With over 32,000 square feet, the park is home to the country’s largest collection of outdoor murals dedicated to the cultural heritage of the community.
