The Flower City Arts Center wishes to acknowledge the deep impact of racism in the greater Rochester community and across our nation. We stand solidly with anyone who is committed to changing systems that contribute to oppression, bigotry, and inequality.

We understand violence and brutality have very real impacts on our mental, emotional, and physical health, particularly for our neighbors who are Black, and we offer our full support as a community arts center committed to providing art for all people.
