Space Rental

The main gallery space at WNYBAC is offered on an as-available basis for private rentals: meetings, parties, receptions, fundraisers, instruction, or other events. We rent outside of standard hours for poetry readings, birthday parties, professional development meetings, and bar/bat mitzvahs. The room can be rented with the option of having a basement printing demonstration (with a custom keepsake of your event created and printed by your guests). Rates are very reasonable, with member rental fees at a lower rate. Please contact us with any questions.
