The Dyer Arts Center Does First Friday!
RIT/NTID’s Dyer Arts Center is thrilled to participate in Rochester’s First Friday monthly event. RocCity Signers will be the host venue, showcasing selections from the Dyer Arts Center’s permanent collection. “Clairvoyance: The Physique of Phantoms” will feature odd and unusual pieces unified by spooky, muted colors in preparation for Halloween.
First Friday is monthly citywide gallery night that inspires collaboration between non-profit, university, and commercial art venues in Rochester, New York.
Our next event will be on Friday, October 2nd from 6pm to 9pm at 11 N. Goodman Street.
The Latin Deaf Club will be showcasing art works by Latin Deaf artists in the Sculpture gallery, and celebrating Hispanic Hertiage month during the week of September 21st.
Opening on September 17th with a reception from 4pm to 6pm, a photo exhibit will showcase photos of the late Jennifer Van Atta Hayes's travels and RIT/NTID student travels. Jennifer was a staff interpreter and alumna of RIT. She dedicated her career to faciliating communication access for deaf students at RIT and in the Rochester community. Jennifer loved to travel and provided support for RIT/NTID study abroad experiences. This photo exhibit will tie in with a fundraiser on October 15th for the Jennifer Van Atta Hayes Scholarship.

The scholarship was established in 2014 in memory of staff interpreter and alumna, Jennifer Van Atta Hayes, a top sign language interpreter who dedicated her career to facilitating communication access for deaf students at RIT and in the Rochester community. Jennifer was an RIT staff interpreter for fifteen years who lived with cancer the last seven years of her life. Her journey ended last year at the age of 44.
Jennifer loved to travel and provided support for RIT/NTID study abroad experiences, and this endowed scholarship will continue her legacy.
