Celebration Series

All are welcome!

Several times each year, the Memorial Art Gallery opens its doors and offers Rochester area families and community members the opportunity to learn more about specific cultures. These events for all ages feature hands-on art activities, music and dance demonstrations, storytelling, and a variety of cultural displays. Suggested donation $5 per group.


The Gallery Council of the Memorial Art Gallery is a series sponsor for our Celebration days. Thank you!
