“Flip the Switch” opening party | June 29 | 6:30-10 pm

MAG is commissioning artist Jim Sanborn to make a public work of art for the area in front of our 1913 building. Argentum: Double-Positive consists of placing two projection cylinders in front of the “1913”. These cylinders are perforated with a series of texts that will light up at night (with the aid of an internal point source light) and be projected widely onto the facade and surrounding landscape of MAG’s “1913” building. The texts will specifically highlight the creativity and invention that have been the core industry of the City of Rochester for decades.
