Here at the Rochester Art Center we’re excitedly anticipating the change from Winter to Spring. But regardless of when the flowers finally start to bloom, we remain consistently grateful for your support! Because of your contributions, Rochester Art Center continues to welcome people from all backgrounds to experience arts and culture in new ways.

Our galleries are now completely filled, bursting with art that interrogates, articulates and creatively expresses the experience of living in the contemporary moment. Eamon O’Kane’s Intimate Expansive brings architecture and nature together from across the world and in our own community. Chris Larson and Jordan Rosenow’s The Space of a Line examines the hidden and unseen in the structures we inhabit in real life and in our imaginations. Tom Erickson’s Architectural Appendages views fixed buildings as structures that morph across time and need. Across each of these exhibits, Rochester Art Center poses questions about our relationship to the built environment and encourages questioning, creativity and critical thinking.

We’re also eagerly awaiting Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code, a major Summer exhibition funded by the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine and hosted at Rochester Art Center. We’ll be adding art, creative perspective and new programming to accompany this award winning exhibit across the entire Summer.

We added several new programs this year such as Parent Artist Gather sessions and Trolley Tours of three Frank Lloyd Wright homes, alongside our stalwart exhibition openings and Free Family Day programs.

As we continue to offer new access and welcome everyone through our doors, we remain mindful stewards of our available funds and your ongoing support. To continue to build out our sustainable financial model, we hope you will make a financial donation to help us reach our goal of $25,000 this Spring. Please use the attached mailer with a check or contact us at our website.

We’re confident that we have accessible, interesting and vital exhibitions and programs. We continue to believe that we can be a creative hub for all. We simply need your financial support to help us realize our visions together. Won’t you join us?

Please consider a new or increased gift this Spring as we throw open the doors, welcome the fresh air and enjoy our new season at Rochester Art Center!
