Build on the arts. Transform the future.
We all have something to express. That’s the beauty of our shared humanity. And it’s why the Joseph Avenue Arts and Culture Alliance is committed to bringing music, dance, theater, and visual arts to families and children throughout our neighborhood—and throughout Rochester. The centerpiece of our efforts: transforming a landmark synagogue into an 11,000 square-foot performance and gallery space by 2019. And while we’re at it, we’re also helping to coordinate programming our neighbors can take advantage of right now.
It’s a lot of work. And we love it. But to keep the momentum, we need your generous support.
