Current & Upcoming Exhibitions

Nicole Havekost: Matriarchate

January 11 - April 2, 2023

The Rochester Art Center presents a solo exhibition of monumental sculptures and multimedia installations by Rochester-based artist Nicole Havekost.

Walk With Us

May 14 , 2022- March 19, 2023

When walking becomes an intentional activity, i.e., something more than utilitarian movement, worlds open up. Artists and creative thinkers have been aware of this keyway into creativity for centuries, and so there is a deep history of writers, visual artists, scientists, philosophers and other creative thinkers engaged in this practice.

Proto Language

October 15, 2022 - February 19, 2023

By Chris Delisle. Proto Language refers to a notion that there is an ancestral parent language which all other languages are derived from and that, as human beings, we understand and respond to symbols on a deep cognitive level.
