Join University of Rochester alumni, parents, and friends for an evening of merriment at the Memorial Art Gallery.  As we celebrate its centennial, director Grant Holcomb will take a few moments to look back at how far the art gallery has come and look ahead at what is in store for the future. 

Discover the remarkable treasures the art gallery has to offer, including the magnificent 18th-century Italian Baroque organ on permanent display.  Owned by the Eastman School of Music, the organ is the only one of its kind in North America, and it will be played intermittentely throughout the evening.
