The Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester announced a change in format for the 2020 M&T Bank Clothesline Festival.

Originally scheduled as an in-person gathering on September 12-13, this year’s event will be an online event running Sept. 12-18. M&T Bank is matching every gift to MAG’s annual fund, up to $25,000, during the festival.

“The most important concern is for the safety and health of our artists, staff, volunteers, vendors, musicians and our community,” director Jonathan Binstock said. “The decision to move this year’s festival online was extremely difficult. It is MAG’s largest annual fundraiser and a ton of fun. It’s always a highlight of my summer.”

Email for inquiries regarding refunds, booth transfers or registrations. The $25 application fee is waived for any 2021 booth transfers.
