Latino Art Exhibit

The Rochester Public Library recently won a grant from ALA to celebrate Latino culture. This grant has provided us with funds to host events that explore the rich and varied history and experiences of Latinos, who have helped shape the Rochester, and the United States over the last five centuries and who have become, with more than 50 million people, the country's largest minority group. One of the events will be an art exhibit of Latino artists here at the Central Library next year May 5 - June 30. We are looking for Latino artists who may be interested in participating in this exhibit that will show how their personal histories have affected their work. If interested please contact [email protected]. You can view the whole schedule of events here:

7th Annual Arts Experience

Call for Proposals: 7th Annual Arts Experience April 1 –8, 2016 (tentative dates). MISSION: The Arts Experience is a partnership of Hobart & William Smith Colleges and the Collaborative of the Finger Lakes. The festival is an opportunity for participants, including people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities, the college community, and the general public to explore various means of expression through the arts. VISION: The Arts Experience will cultivate and embrace the spirit of inclusion through participation in the arts, artistic performance and celebration. Are you interested in facilitating an arts workshop, giving a presentation, showing a film, or sharing a performance at the festival? Please bring your talent, expertise and energy! The festival aims to showcase talents and provide opportunities to explore visual arts, dance, performance, music, fiber arts, video, digital storytelling, creative writing, photography, and/or other forms of creative expression. The theme of this year’s festival is Generations: Art of All Ages. We encourage arts workshops, films, presentations, performances, displays, and the Gala’s art exhibit to include various interpretations and representations around this theme, where possible, but welcome all ideas.
