Description

The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts is a non-profit volunteer-based effort. The purpose of the museum is to serve Rochester and the surrounding areas by preserving, collecting and fostering the understanding of works of art. The permanent collection has been entirely donated and includes outstanding examples of contemporary works made by artists from around the world. This wide range of art, featuring over 150 pieces, encompasses a variety of media including painting, sculpture, photography, and works on paper. The collection is exhibited in three nearby public libraries and City Hall. The RMFA gallery, in downtown Rochester, features borrowed works on a bi-monthly basis. Each exhibit is celebrated with an opening reception that is free and open to the public. These exhibits feature regionally, nationally, and internationally recognized artists like Susan Kare, Bob Gruen, and Wayne White. The RMFA also hosts an annual film series in the beautifully restored Rochester Opera House. The series presents independent films filled with cinematic creativity from both award-winning professionals and emerging student filmmakers.
