Explore Rochester started a year ago with the idea to connect the people and places of Rochester to each other. Launching originally with only an Instagram account, they showcase weekly contributors who have a chance to share their lives and favorite places through photos and stories. From this also grew a hashtag (#explorerochester) allowing followers to share their stores and places too.

Recently, Explore Rochester, teamed up with Makers Gallery and Studio to celebrate their first year offline with an exhibit highlighting the first 52 weeks. This show will be up until April 17th - so don't miss out!
