  • This place is a great place to explore art in Rochester, NY and makes for a fun and interesting wedding venue. It can visually stimulate conversations all around a reception. Art begs a response and anyone visiting will have plenty of opportunity to voice their opinions. I did not hear one political comment all night. It was refreshing that people could converse more about life in the presence of art. What a great place to bring people together!
  • Artisanworks is a unique art gallery with different twist for its collection. Sculpture, painting, photos, cars, games and more. Each room is decorated in its own unique way. You will look and look and look some more only to keep seeing new things. I recommend taking the behind the scenes tour to see the impressions private car collection. Along with the huge storage rooms field with art for loan. Every single corner hallway and room has something to offer you. It's a must see destination in Rochester.
  • Best art place I have been to in my life! Breathtaking experience. Must go at least once !
  • Don't skip this gem. Full of quirky, thought provoking and fun exhibits. You can spend hours upon hours here. While walking about remember to look in all directions, there's fun surprises above, below, in and around every corner. Worth seeing and worth seeing again, support local artists!
  • Not just a wedding venue. Very cool... Art gallery? It's more like someone decorated every inch of a building with weird art, and for like $12 you can go exploring. I heard they have good tours of some of the buildings on certain days, but I wasn't there on one of those days. While we were there, they were definitely setting up some sort of event, but we were able to just wander through all the same.
