You’ll be surprised at what you’ll find at our local arts center
Located at the Seymore Place in downtown Batavia, the Genesee-Orleans Regional Arts Council (GO ART!) provides an ever-changing collection of artisan exhibits in their gallery.
They offer a broad range of opportunities for artists and cultural organizations through ongoing gallery exhibits, youth activities, arts and crafts shows, and many other programs. Since 1962, GO ART has been dedicated to the growth and promotion of artists and making art an integral part of everyday life.
Their on-site Tavern 2.o.1 is open Thursdays and Fridays from 5-9pm for you to sit and enjoy craft beverage (beer, cider, mead) and other specialty drinks.
On Saturdays from 9am-noon the space becomes Café 2.o.1 serving fair trade coffees from all around the world utilizing French press and pour-over techniques -- try a coffee flight while you're there! A newly redesigned space, The Owen Library, contains art books, a white baby grand piano, a fireplace, seating, and table games.
A Musical Garden
Step outside and explore their unique Play Me A Tune Music Garden. These weather-resistant instruments from England are available to play during GO ART!’s open hours. Also, enjoy the murals in the music garden by Jill Pettigrew (with help from members of the community and the Batavia Senior Center).
