Connections: Do We Really Like Arts and Preservation?

Is Rochester an arts town... that doesn't buy art? Are we a town filled with preservationists at heart... who don't know much about our history? These are uncomfortable but important questions. We'll explore them, and we'll get a look at an upcoming event with art and preservation at its core. Our guests:

  • Caitlin Meives, preservation planner with the Landmark Society of Western New York
  • Erich Lehman, Gallery 1975
  • Jason Barber, photographer and artist
