Rochester, NY

The Memorial Art Gallery (MAG) showcases visual art from antiquity to the present day, including an outdoor public Centennial Sculpture Park. MAG has a permanent collection of more than 12,000 objects. The 14-acre campus is a much-loved public art space that is a popular destination for residents and visitors to the city. In addition to its permanent collection, MAG offers a year-round schedule of special exhibitions, lectures, concerts, tours, after-hours social events, and family activities.

Bow Bridge was retained by MAG to promote its 2020 exhibition The Path to Paradise: Judith Schaechter’s Stained-Glass Art, the first survey and major scholarly assessment of this groundbreaking artist’s 37-year career. Bow Bridge provided communications counsel and media outreach assistance to help position MAG as a dynamic institution in western New York with a rigorous exhibition program contributing to the study of and public engagement with art.
