Celebrating Rochester's Art
The City of Rochester values the visual arts as an educational and aesthetic experience. More importantly, the City sees local art as part of the culture of this region. With this in mind, the Link Gallery, established 1981, promotes the art and art culture of the area.
The Gallery, located at 30 Church St., is on the first floor of City Hall in the corridor that connects Building A to Building B. It is opened Monday - Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free, handicapped accessible and open to the public, the Link is easy to get to from anywhere in the City.
Annual showcases include The Hispanic Heritage Month exhibition and The Black History Month exhibition.
Pieces are prepared for installation by the artists themselves and are displayed along the corridor using wire/ceiling mount suspension system. This presentation allows for viewers to walk along the corridor and view one piece at a time.
The Link Gallery is maintained by a volunteer coordinator who maintains the viewing schedule. The coordinator can be contacted with any further questions through the Special Events Office at 585-428-6690.
