Wow. What a collection of art. Very eclectic. Every room has a theme from a real fire truck to old dolls to a wine cellar. It is a huge never ending collection of art.

Really eclectic art of all types- hanging from the ceiling, on the walls, on the floor - in every nook and cranny. the event was a "food cruising" one and it worked great because people wanted to walk through all the rooms and see all the work. aside from an event I think it is way overpriced as a gallery....

Difficult to describe ... the 20th century works displayed here are a combination of one man's collections and the work produced by artists he "incubates" and provides work space for. It's like stepping into a time machine, primarily showcasing the 50s and 60s. But it's more than that. Life-sized stuffed animals like giraffes (and I'm talking about taxidermy, not toys).... More

This place is huge. So much art work to see in various rooms. Some art is traditional, other is more modern, and the there is the very weird. Great place to wander around by yours of or with friends they also do parties too

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.
