Celebration Series

New year, new name! Formally known as Family Days, we are changing the name to Celebration. It’s not just for families anymore!

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 family.
