Past, Present & Future: Collaborative Art Project

You’re invited! Join us for a hands-on art activity in the Grand Lobby. We’re rolling out a scroll of paper to be made into a collaborative community project around the theme of “past, present and future.” As we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Rochester Art Center, help us by reflecting on the past and envisioning the future through a series of writing and drawing prompts.

All ages are welcome to participate while maintaining physical distancing.

Queer Youth Art Exhibition

Join us at 12:00 Noon to enjoy tunes from Push & Turn! Hailing from Rochester Minnesota, Push & Turn started as a trio consisting of drummer Cameron Smith, Kyle Truex on the bass, and Sothea Lam as the lead vocalist/guitarist while using a loop station. After playing music festivals and the local music scene in Minnesota over the years, they recently added Lead Guitarist/Vocalist Tyler Kispert, and backup vocalist/keyboardist Zach Kase to the band adding a blues and jam band feel to their reggae sound and harmonies that turn heads.
