Life is what you make it – and so is art! Join Rochester Art Center staff on May 5th from 1 – 4 PM as we explore perception and build our artistic community by collaborating on a new mural for our classroom space. Everyone who participates will be given a two dimensional cube (take our word for it) to decorate and display, and another to decorate and take home to start their own mural with family and friends.

Pre-registration is not required for this event but if you want to skip the check-in line, you can register online here. The schedule for Free Family Day is open, you can come anytime between 1 – 4! Free parking is available on the street and in the Civic Center ramp.

For further information regarding Free Family Days, please contact our information desk via phone at 507-282-8629 or email at

Date, time and location subject to change.

Since 2004, children and families have taken part in one of Rochester Art Center’s most popular and exciting programs, Free Family Day. The first Saturday of each month, admission to Rochester Art Center is free for everyone. Guests are invited to create original art pieces in the studio classroom, our Grand Lobby and occasionally off-site with a collaborative partner.
