Support the space!

Studio and event space rentals keep our rent paid and keep the light on month to month, but there are so many little improvements we could make to better serve the artists we are here to support. Track lighting, fresh drywall, spackle, paint and so many more consumables go into creating an inspiring environment and a blank slate for each new artist to reinvent.

The magic people experience when they come to The Yards is the result of endless hard work behind the scenes from a dedicated director and countless volunteers who believe in our mission. If you have had a magical night at The Yards, show us your support so we can keep creating beautiful experiences for Rochesterians for years to come!

Please consider becoming a member! We also encourage you to visit our online shop to order Yards merchandise, make a donation, or purchase an item from one of our featured artists.
