A surprise discovery by a Rochester art center

March 21, 2018 10:12 PM

The Rochester Contemporary Art Center is getting ready to host the 6x6 exhibition. It's an annual art show that draws artists from around the globe.

Some artists are well-known, while others are new to the craft and have no training at all.

Late Congresswoman Louise Slaughter also submitted one. Her submission was a photo of Rochester's train station.

The Center's Executive Director, Bleu Cease, was going though submissions just Wednesday morning when he found Rep. Slaughter's. 

"I was pulling out a few artworks, and we found her package, and we opened it up and the image was of the train station," he said. "It's official now because the train station will now be renamed after her, so it’s wonderful memento and a wonderful tribute to have."

Cease said he will most likely not sell Rep. Slaughter's work. 

However, all other submitted artwork will be exhibited and for sale to the public for $20 each.

The art show runs June 2 - July 15. The deadline for all entries is April 15.
