I had heard about this place before but had never really put it on my radar until I heard about an exhibit by Viktor Mitic who does paintings using bullets which was pretty interesting and controversial. The exhibit has paintings of JFK, Jesus and Hello Kitty among other and they have a brief film showing how he does it. Arriving,... More

Great art everywhere you look. Went there for a school function. They had very good catered food and drinks. Parts of the building have low lighting - which can be good or bad depending on th purpose of your function. Interesting place to reserve for an event.

Monday private event was recently held at the Artisan Works, in Rochester NY. I was thrilled with how smoothly the event went. The venue was fascinating, the food was lovely, and all Artisan Works people involved were most professional and helpful. Madeline’s Catering went above and beyond my expectations. Delicious! A special thanks to Victoria, Louis, and Meghan for your... More

This was a great evening outing. The wait staff was fantastic, food was good and the museum had displays that could hold anyone's interest.

This older factory building has been turned into a pop culture museum, of sorts. It is hard to accurately describe this venue. There are artifacts covering almost every square inch of the walls and ceiling in this place. Very interesting. The food was very good as well.

They have packed so many pieces or Americana and artwork in this building that one could return the next and discover more things. All the walls and ceilings are covered. It is a fun place for hostings parties.

I've been to parties and wedding receptions here. Eclectic can't begin to describe it. It's hard to explain - you just have to go see it to believe it.

A really eclectic, unusual art museum, with something for everyone. Your eyes cannot take in everything in one visit. Great to go to on a cold winters day. Events and weddings are held in a artsy banquet area with artwork even on the ceiling! Love the 50's area, very nostalgic. Set in an industrial area, this is a must see... More
