New Gallery Exhibit: Revisiting Rochester

February 2nd, 2012

A new exhibition celebrating Rochester’s heritage encourages us to honor and preserve our past as we seek to revive our city for the future. Beginning February 3, a collection of digitally-enhanced images of Rochester during the Progressive Era will be on display at Joe Bean Coffee Roasters [map external link] throughout the entire month of February.

Clinton Avenue, c.1900 [IMAGE: Part of 'Revisiting Rochester' exhibit]Mike BattleThe prints, which are GiclĂ©es (fine digital/inkjet) on museum quality paper, are provided by Rochester native Mike Battle external link. Battle, an animation designer/illustrator who has worked on several well known television series including The Simpsons and King of the Hill, believes these old images of Rochester have a special relevance today. “It’s a way for Rochestarians to reconnect to our roots and enjoy the heritage that has led us to where we are today,” says Battle.

    Beautiful!!!

    Thanks, Joe Bean, for featuring yet another great exhibit! This one in particular provides a good reminder to think about a city’s history before tearing stuff down to make way for something generic.
