Sponsorships


As a business owner you know how important it is to continually reach out to potential customers. We can help you do just that to a broad segment of Rochester area residents. Become a sponsor of one or more events at the Flower City Arts Center to get your products, services and business name out to people who are our current customers.

The Flower City Arts Center has been serving the people of the Rochester area for more than 40 years. You may know one of our special programs or events like Studio 678 Photo Club or Chili Cookoff. Thousands of people have attended our programs and continue to come back for more learning, fun, and opportunity.

Students, guests, and customers of the Flower City Arts Center range in age from 4-94, with many repeat customers at events or classes each year. Our audience includes people who spend discretionary income on arts education, handmade items, art objects, time in our studios, and having fun at events. We draw people from Rochester, the surrounding suburbs, Western NY as well as out of town visitors.

Do these people sound like your next customers? If so, sponsor one or more events. As an event sponsor, you will be listed on our website and in our quarterly brochure. Signs noting your participation will be prominently displayed in our building for our 1,000 students and over 2,000 additional visitors each year.
