MAGconnect

To make Memorial Art Gallery exhibitions and programs accessible to a broad and diverse audience, MAGconnect offers free transportation, complimentary admission, and a one-year MAG membership to community residents who qualify for participation in the program.

MAG staff members work closely with both individuals and community organizations to promote the program, identify participants, and coordinate group visits.

  • Teen Central students from Wheatley and Rundel Libraries
  • Wilson Commencement Park
  • Montgomery Senior Citizens Center

  • Baden Street Child Development Center
  • YMCA Carlson Center
  • Action for a Better Community Adult Learners

MAG hopes to welcome 500 Rochester residents a year, with a balance between repeat and new visitors.
