About Rochester Artist Collaborative

“We want to empower Artists.”

Rochester Artist Collaborative’s goal is to discover, incubate and empower emerging Artists from underrepresented communities to evolve their work, grow their audience and distribute their creations to the Community and beyond.

Launched in 2018 Rochester Artist Collaborative is a digital space that brings Artists from multiple disciplines together to create physical art works for the Community. Featured Artists create original artwork available to purchase online for the community and at pop-up events.

This allows for the continued growth of diversity in our community and directly supports local Artists.

Rochester Artist Collaborative believes everyone benefits when great minds get together to engage on diverse topics and cultural experiences.
