An Introduction to Rochester's Great Architects
Ever wonder who was responsible for designing some of your favorite buildings in Rochester? This class will provide a brief introduction to the many local architects and their buildings that have shaped the city we all know and love today. Learn about the designers responsible for City Hall to the Liberty Pole and some houses too, with lots of eye-candy visuals, some fun facts, and maybe even a bit of historical gossip!
Please note: After 5pm, all general, reserved, and visitor parking spots are open to the public in Lot E and Lot F. Park and walk through the breezeway to the right of the large orange MAGIC building, taking the doors to the right into Booth Hall. University Gallery is at the end of the hallway.
