Rochester Art Center

Striking Art Center In Rochester

The Rochester Art Center unfolds in two architectural volumes linked by a glass lobby that frames views of downtown Rochester and the Zumbro River. The Tower block serves as the structural anchor for the cantilevered, three-story Art Box gallery wing, which appears to float over a glass lobby and the river. The Zumbro River Gardens surround the building with foliage, creating a serene setting for visitors.
