This program season at The Rockwell brings a series of exhibitions and special programs centered on the ever-changing and complex American experience. As the only conduit to Smithsonian resources in Upstate NY, we are excited to not only bring you nationally relevant topics to a local stage, but just as thrilled to present nationally renowned experts from the Smithsonian network.
Each program will take place from 6 to 7 p.m., and will be followed by an exclusive Silver Dollar Society reception with the speaker.
