The Art Cart of Rochester is a non profit organization started as an entrepreneurial project by a University of Rochester undergraduate student who has a love for art. We understand artists can't keep or sell every piece of work they've ever made, but this doesn't mean their art has to be thrown out either. By donating artwork to the Art Cart, artists create an opportunity for their art to find its way into a loving home where it can be fully appreciated. 

We aim to have several Art Carts scattered around the city, making them more accessible for all. In doing this, we hope to further increase the interest in art in Rochester, establish new connections between artists and non-artists, and add some beauty to the homes of Rochester. We want to get to a point where we can begin involving the community in the art making process so that the effort and care that goes into a piece of art is better understood.


Rochester is full of cultural and artistic energy. Through our Art Carts, we want to strengthen this city's commitment to being an art haven by making art readily available to everyone. By providing the artists of the area with an opportunity to recycle their art in a meaningful way, we hope their donations both further their recognition and inspire new minds to take up art as an interest, a hobby, or even as a career.
