Open Map Blurred Map
Flower City Arts Center offers educational programs in a variety of visual arts with an emphasis on three areas: Printmaking & Book Arts, Ceramics, and Photography & Digital Arts. We produce youth programs, classes, and workshops, provide facilities to our studio artists, and exhibit work in our galleries. We collaborate with community groups for the benefit of all. Our photography, ceramics, and book arts programs are available to community members of all ages, incomes, and backgrounds. We are a community-based not-for-profit that educates, encourages, and inspires all people to create and enjoy the visual arts. Flower City Arts Center celebrated 50 years in 2020. Established in 1970, Flower City Arts Center is located in a historic firehouse, constructed in 1895-1905 (try to find evidence of the fire poles next time you're here!). We are the only community visual arts center conveniently located within the City of Rochester. In 1973, the Arts Center incorporated as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit educational institution. Flower City Arts Center is an Institutional Member of the National Guild for Community Arts Education.
