'Make Art Day' launches RoCo’s 6x6
All throughout Friday, citizens of Rochester hunkered down over 6-inch by 6-inch squares of paper or canvas and used paint or glue guns to unleash their pent-up creative frustrations. It was “Make Art Day.”
Rochester Contemporary Art Center lined up more than 35 businesses and organizations around the area with one goal in mind: Create 1,000 pieces of 6-inch by 6-inch art in one day.
The 6x6 is the nonprofit gallery’s wildly successful fundraiser. Now in its 13th year, school kids, amateurs, local B-level celebrities and professional artists will contribute one or as many as three pieces of art.
Thousands of drawings, paintings, photos and dog-hair collages to be exhibited on the walls of RoCo, at 137 East Ave.
And on June 6, they go up for sale. All pieces, just $20.
The deadline to submit your own 6x6 piece of art is April 11. For more, go to rochestercontemporary.org.
