  • Nicely-curated exhibit of this turn of the century artist who was most-noted for his posters for Sarah Bernhardt. Beautiful lithographs on display, some illustrating techniques for adding color.  more »
  • I was in Rochester last weekend for the 2019 Clothesline Festival and I was not disappointed at all. The festival is huge! I had planned on attending both days setting aside a half day to tour this great institution. The festival was a lot of fun. There was food and music for all kinds of tastes. I bought a print from a New York State artist. The art gallery/museum is huge also. Plenty to see so plan accordingly. Someone was playing the huge pipe organ upstairs, probably trying to wake the mummies. There is a restaurant on location also a fine gift shop. Some of the artwork in the gallery is for sale so ask about it at the shop. Plenty of parking when the festival is not running. Memberships are also available which offers money saving benefits. The Memorial Art Gallery (MAG) is located on the University Of Rochester Campus on University Avenue, Rochester New York USA.
