Rochester Museum of Fine Arts
65 South Main Street,
The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts is the city's foremost visual arts organization focused on the presentation and accessibility of fine art.
Our 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 housed in the Rochester City Hall, Rochester Public Library, Somersworth Public Library, and The Goodwin Library in Farmington, NH.
The Carnegie Gallery at the Rochester Public Library features borrowed works on a bi-monthly basis. Each exhibit is free and open to the public. Past exhibits have featured regionally, nationally, and internationally recognized artists like Susan Kare, Bob Gruen, and Wayne White as well as selections from the Picasso Estate Collection.
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.
