About First Fridays:
First Friday is a monthly citywide gallery night out in Rochester centered around the Neighborhood of the Arts. It is a collaboration between non-profit, university, and commercial art venues in Rochester, NY. This initiative showcases area artists and arts institutions by promoting the First Friday evening of each month as a community night for experiencing art. All kinds of artists open their doors for open houses, interactive demonstrations and much more. The Anderson Arts Building, which is where the Montanus Gallery is located, is a great starting point to experience the event each month. The building is buzzing with activity during these times.
