ARTWalk Public Meeting

Monday, January 29, 2007

7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Rochester Museum & Science Center, Cunningham House

Sponsored by ARTWalk, The City of Rochester and

Rochester Regional Community Design Center


All ARTWalk Stakeholders* are invited to a public meeting that will focus on the design of the Goodman-University Intersection where the current ARTWalk and the ARTWalk extensions will intersect.


The Goodman-University Intersection is the nexus of the Neighborhood of the Arts. The expanded ARTWalk project has the potential to further strengthen an important civic and cultural district: a destination of many arts and cultural organizations for RochesterŐs residents and visitors.


Input from Stakeholders -- your input -- will help to determine how the Goodman-University Intersection reflects all that the neighborhood is and will be.

The City of Rochester received Federal funding through the office of the Honorable Louise M. Slaughter to upgrade University Avenue and to extend ARTWalk. ARTWalk currently runs along University Avenue from the east side of the Goodman/University Intersection to the George Eastman House. Funding will extend ARTWalk on three spurs:


Spur 1. University Avenue from the Goodman-University Intersection west to Prince Street, ending at Visual Studies Workshop and School of the Arts

Spur 2. Goodman Street from the Goodman-University intersection south to East Avenue, ending at the Rochester Museum and Science Center

Spur 3. Goodman Street from the Goodman-University intersection north to Village Gate and the Arts & Cultural Council for Greater Rochester                             234-6670
