Some things you might like to know


Hallwalls from Delaware Ave. On January 14, 2006, Hallwalls reopened its exhibition galleries, media arts screening/performance facilities, and offices at Babeville (the former Asbury Delaware Methodist Church) on the corner of Delaware Avenue and Tupper Street, in spaces we are leasing from Righteous Babe Records, the building's savior, owner, developer, and only other co-occupant.

Our mission

Ann Magnuson, March '83
Ann Magnuson, March '83
A. To provide a center for contemporary art.

B. To recognize and serve a vital community artistic presence which is global in its outlook, challenging in its ideas, pluralistic in its concerns, and diverse in its expression. Hallwalls' twofold mission is to serve artists by supporting the creation and presentation of new work in the visual, media, performing, and literary arts, and to serve the public by making these works available to audiences. We are dedicated in particular to work by artists which challenges and extends the traditional boundaries of the various art forms, and which is critically engaged with current issues in the arts and--through the arts--in society. Finally, we believe that the right of freedom of expression for artists, and for free access to their works by interested individuals, must be protected as a fundamental and necessary condition of our mission.

Directions, Parking, and Accessibility




Free parking for Hallwalls events is usually available in our adjacent lot. Note that we share this lot with Babeville, and there may be occasions on which another event in the building would cause the lot to be full or otherwise unavailable. In this case, it is often possible to find street parking on Delaware Avenue south of Tupper, or on South Elmwood Avenue.

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.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
