The Memorial Art Gallery (MAG), part of the University of Rochester, is located in the Neighborhood of the Arts. Its permanent collection of 12,000 works spans 50 centuries of world art and includes masterworks by artists such as [wikipedia]Monet, [wikipedia]Cézanne, [wikipedia]Matisse, [wikipedia]Homer and [wikipedia]Cassatt. The grounds offer a Centennial Sculpture park for the public to enjoy for free.
