This small museum/gallery/art education center has amazing, unusual shows and events. I have seen several unique, well-curated exhibits there: right now, it's modern art quilts from all over. They often show textile arts. I understand they have children's art camps and other special events, too....More

Thank you for the great review! We appreciate your time in providing it.

Been there multiple times-for specific shows. Art for the most part in my opinion is overated. Some good some absolute garbage. Seem to love knitted work (yawn). They might try to fine some people with a broader palette to judge what goes up here.

We're sorry that you didn't enjoy your visit. We try to represent a variety of different media at the Schweinfurth, including a juried contemporary art show of New York State artists every spring called Made in NY. I would recommend visiting that show.

El Esposo and I visited here for their opening in conjunction with Auburn's "First Fridays." The gallery was small but nice, with typical art gallery opening fare: Cheese, crackers and vino. Food and beverages were not allowed in the gallery--understandable-- but that meant that the...More

Thanks for the great review! We look forward to seeing you again for First Friday.

We make this a regular stop for first Friday. There is always something interesting on display plus free refreshments and music! This is truly an "art center" for the community, offering a variety of activities and a full slate of shows each year.

We’ve been to the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center several times in the past and we know it’s always worth the 90 minutes drive from Rochester to see the current show. The Center is a comfortable size with a main gallery and four smaller display rooms...More

The Schweinfurth is a small museum that has very unique exhibits. They seem to have made textiles a focus and the current exhibit was of textiles. Each year they have quilt shows and a wonderful school exhibit. Worth a stop.

Small museum with a high admission price, but always interesting. Exhibits are on one level. They are usually innovative art &/or sculpture - with a theme. Creative artists use a variety of materials which non-creative folks, like me, find totally fascinating. If you like unusual...More

Response from Schweinfurth | Property representative |
Yes, the Schweinfurth is handicapped accessible. There is handicapped parking in front of the art center, and there is an elevator to get to the second-floor gallery.
