A Sense of Place: Prints from the Collection of David Z. Friedberg

Opens June 25, 2021

This exhibition showcases David Z. Friedberg’s recent generous gift to MAG of his collection of late 19th- and early 20th-century prints. Many are by the innovative French printmaker Felix Buhot, who combined multiple techniques in a single print. The collection reflects Dr. Friedberg’s personal taste and interests and include landscapes, cityscapes, and domestic scenes.

Young Salut

August 15–August 2022

Young Salut’s arresting bright pastels and amorphous shapes capture the humor and absurdity of everyday life through the lens of an optimistic young child. For the next installation of contemporary mural art at MAG, Rochester artist Young Salut (Bradd Young) will fill the walls of the Hurlbut Gallery with his light-hearted and candy-colored images inspired by the cartoons and memories of childhood.


Rochester-Finger Lakes

August 15–October 17, 2021

Every two years, Rochester’s oldest and longest-running juried exhibition showcases new work in all media by emerging and established artists from a 27-county region of western and central New York State. Since only a small percentage of works submitted are chosen, Finger Lakes remains a prestigious showcase for regional artists.
