Q: Why do you love RoCo?
A: I love RoCo because of the ways in which I feel that it promotes accessibility in the local art scene - by offering Rochesterians the opportunity to experience diverse exhibitions at an affordable price and by inviting them to more actively participate in the arts through events such as 6x6.
Q: How long have you been a member?
A: I became a member in 2016.
Q: What is your favorite exhibition and why?
A: My favorite past exhibition is "Vanish," because of the powerful and thought-provoking message that the artists involved in it conveyed through their unique perspectives on loss. "State of the City: Street-ish" will always hold a special place in my heart though, because my earliest memory of RoCo takes place during this exhibit, when I stumbled upon Craig Colorusso's "Sun Boxes" in the yard adjacent to the gallery.
Q: Who is your favorite artist?
A: My favorite artist varies by medium. One of my favorite art forms is street art, which I first gained an appreciation for thanks to Rochester's WALL\THERAPY project. My favorite street artist is currently Invader. Unfortunately he hasn't invaded Rochester with his arcade game-themed mosaics but I have spotted his handiwork in NYC and in Paris.
