The Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester and Rochester Association of Performing Arts (RAPA) are delighted to announce that the Arts & Cultural Council will be moving this spring into its new home at the Kodak Center for Performing Arts at Eastman Business Park on West Ridge Road, Rochester NY. The council’s new headquarters will include a gallery as well as offices and meeting space. The move is expected to be completed in late April, following the conclusion of our April 2-24 exhibit, entitled MUSE, a fantastic collaboration by Brian O'Neill and Rochester City Ballet.

“We are very excited to welcome the Arts & Cultural Council,” said Jim Vollertsen, RAPA CEO and President. “We are looking forward to the executive committees of both our organizations working together on partnership opportunities.”

Arts & Cultural Council Board Chair Grace Tillinghast added, “The Arts & Cultural Council is thrilled with this opportunity, not only for the council’s new home, but also to be part of what promises to be the premier performing arts facility in Western New York.”
