Founded in 2011 by Lea Rizzo and Sarah C. Rutherford, The Yards is a collaborative art space in the heart of the historic Rochester Public Market. And like the Market, this dynamic gathering spot is in a constant state of creative transformation—continually bringing new sights, sounds, flavors and faces through its door.
Part work studio (for Sarah and Lea) part gallery, The Yards is an open gathering place that welcomes all of Rochester to experience art as a living, breathing part of the world around us. Through groundbreaking installations, provocative performances, refreshing workshops, and shared meals, we invite you to immerse yourself in this shared experience.
Namesake of the trains that still rumble past, The Yards is a place where people and artists cross paths, pause for a moment, and depart. Transformed by something fresh, local, and authentic. A junction of ideas. An institution for the next Rochester, emerging all around us.
The Yards would not be possible without the never ending support of Rochester’s finest collaborators. Artist profiles coming soon… for more information, email us at attheyards(AT)gmail(DOT)com
