  • This looks like a good place to hold event, the view is great. It is a great place for the 40 and up age category. I would hang my work here, but I don't have a degree, nor the great mind that the people that run this place seek. The artists that do show their work are overflowing with sophistication and wisdom. I would like to model my life after their great works. I can't understand the old masters, but the modern artists' work displayed in the art center are truly revolutionary, take my word for it. An outstanding non profit.
  • The art center does a great job of bringing the non-traditional arts to Rochester. The exhibited rotate about every 3 months. They offer classes and events to promote the arts. The one downside is that they do not have space for a collection of pieces.
  • This place is beautiful! It can be difficult to access due to construction, but I can't fault the Art Center for that.
  • We took our Cub Scouts here for the free Art Day program. The kids had a fun time, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The art exhibits themselves were more geared towards adult and seemed a little boring for the kids. I think they could fit about triple the art in the same space if it was used better. I'd like to see one of the major areas overhauled to be more a kid and family section.
  • Went to the Chris Cloud exhibit. Very entertaining, photographs depicting a day in the life of Mayor Brede. I recommend going. The art center is very modern and inviting and easy to access from the parking ramps and walk over bridges downtown. Very handy in our frigid winters.
