Eileen K. Riedman Exhibit Cases  

 2013        2014      2015 

The Art Division is very fortunate to have Eileen K. Riedman as a donor. She is a Rochester resident and has a love of the arts and works hard to promote the talented artists in Monroe County. She has made many contributions to the Arts Division including the division’s display cases for local artists to exhibit their work and collections. We have had blown glass works, jewelry, vintage kitchen wares and aprons, antique music collectibles, and dolls. If you are a local artist and would be interested in displaying your work please speak to us in the Arts division or call us at 585-428-8140.  



The Arts Division has a large collection of framed prints that you can borrow and use to decorate your home or office. You may borrow four at a time, with a loan period of eight weeks. You can view the collection on our Facebook page by clicking here.
