A Lapse into the Ephemeral

March 1 - July 9, 2023

Our Home

May 19, 2022 - May 19, 2023

As Rochester grows every day to be a more racially diverse and international city, the Rochester Art Center strives to highlight and celebrate a plurality of voices through the stories of transplants, immigrants and long-time residents who decided to make Minnesota their home. The creation of a participatory mural showcases this commitment and invites visitors to “meet” the people of Rochester as they enter the Art Center.


Ageless Art

April 14 - May 20, 2023

Ageless Art showcases the creativity of students in Rochester Public Schools. Artwork on view will represent students ranging from Kindergarten to 12th grade and include various mediums including painting, digital arts and photography.


Walk Back to Your Body

September 3, 2022 - January 1, 2023

What does it mean to be in conversation with your body? Many social, cultural, and political conventions we live by today discipline how we experience our bodies. They are often defined by their productivity, utility, fitness, and so on, but rarely through vulnerability and reflection.
