MSN Suggests a Buffalo Getaway

In an ever-expanding circle of media outlets that recognize the beauty of Buffalo, here is an MSN cityguide take on why people should visit the Queen City:

Secrets of
the Rust Belt

Buffalo,
New York is a crucible of innovative work both from highly influential artists
like filmmaker and musician
Tony Conrad, to CEPA
Gallery
, to the
new alternative space
Sugar City, but the crown jewel may be the Albright-Knox Art Gallery

A few years back they caused a stir
in the art world when they sold off some significant classical work, creating a
fund to acquire new contemporary work, long the museum’s greatest strength.
Featuring the largest public collection of Clyfford Still paintings, major work
from artists like Anselm Kiefer, Mark Rothko and Jenny Holzer, and the
cap-feather of being the first gallery to show the work of photographer Cindy
Sherman, this museum is a secret treasure in one of the country’s poorest
cities. 

To top off a visit, spend the rest of your afternoon across the street
in
Delaware Park, the centerpiece of Buffalo’s extensive park-and-parkway system
designed by
Olmsted and Vaux — yes, the same duo that did New York
City’s Central Park and Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.
