Located between Cesar E. Chavez Parkway and Dewey Street on Julian Avenue, in Logan Heights. Students should enter the Athenaeum Art Center via the alley off Dewey Street.
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.

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.
