Mrs. Kasha Davis


Feb.16 - March 22, 2023

DRAG IS NOT A CRIME! Featuring Mrs. Kasha Davis -a star in the world of drag. A performer that New York Magazine called one of the most powerful drag queens in America and just this past year she was awarded a spot in Out Magazines top 100. She has been all over RuPaul’s Drag Race, as well as being a fixture on the Rochester scene.  

Come celebrate with us the Art of Drag!

This exhibit acts as counter-programming to the demonizing of drag and other LGBTQ cultures. As the election season ramps up so is the demonizing language used to divide and other.  This exhibit brings this sub-culture into the hallways of the University. The message here is about Love, Acceptance and Living Your True Self. 


March 06th, 7pm

—Please join us in the Gowan Room (Wilson Commons) for a screening of the documentary film Workhorse Queen-  there will be a Q and A with the director Angela Washko, along with MKD and Aggie Dune.

Through its well-trafficked location at the entrance of the Art and Music Library, Frontispace engages the UR community with thought-provoking exhibitions. The gallery’s year-round schedule and summer residency program stimulate dialogue and connect the university to the broader Western New York artistic landscape, with a focus on local and emerging artists working in a variety of media. The gallery also serves the Art and Art History Department by hosting special exhibitions of work by visiting artists, seniors, and alumni. 

our name

Our gallery takes its inspiration from the frontispiece, traditionally an illustration facing the title page of a book that sets the tone for the contents within. With its rotating exhibitions, Frontispace invites visitors to pause and reflect as they pass through the entryway to the Art and Music library.
