Rochester Art Centre

40 Civic Center Drive SE, Rochester, MN
Max Capacity: 500 people
Our facility is created by two distinct structures, one covered in copper and the other in zinc, linked by a glass atrium. Simple and clean, the design works together with nature, linking the indoors to the outside creating an environment that glows with light from the interplay of sun on the glass and natural metals used throughout. Rochester Art Center offers our guests a spectacular view unlike any other in Rochester. It is the perfect setting for all occasions—from wedding receptions, corporate functions, and holiday parties to, anniversaries, reunions, proms and graduations. Largest and most stunning space in the Art Center, the Mayo Clinic Grand Lobby and Wells Fargo Atrium enclosed in floor to ceiling glass, offers magnificent views of Rochester’s cityscape, the Zumbro River and Mayo Memorial Park.

But the best stories are those of romantic proposals made, family traditions honored and business relationships forged. For almost 150 years, the St. James has had a way of making history happen. Isn’t it time to tell your St. James story?
