The Clothesline Festival is in its 56th year as Rochester's largest and longest-running fine art and crafts festival.
Work was displayed by more than 400 New York State artists throughout the 17 acres of the Memorial Art Gallery lawn.
"We went from the County of Monroe to five counties, and now to the state of New York outside Manhattan," says Memorial Art Gallery Director Grant Holcomb. "It makes it fresh, and I heard people saying today, responding that they liked the new art. I think if they come back seeing the same things, then they might miss a year or two. If they have in their heads that each year will be different, then they'll be coming back."
The Festival introduced this year a solar powered water station, recycling station and bicycle valet to reduce it's carbon footprint.
