On Tuesday, September 27, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery will be hosting a public information session. The interactive meeting will be held at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center in Downtown Buffalo. The interactive session that will allow community members a chance to participate in the process. The gallery’s campus will soon see a new building added, as well as dramatic changes to its grounds.
This past June, the AK announced that it had retained architectural partner OMA (see here). For years, the community has been speculating about a new building. Now it’s time to get to work and bring a new vision to Buffalo that will allow the AK to spread its wings. Currently, the gallery is limited in space, which means that the community and the world continually misses out on works and collections that don’t get to see prime time. Not to mention a campus that lacks connectivity to the rest of the museum district, for numerous reasons including a sprawling parking lot at the gallery’s Elmwood entrance.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of the changes that will take the gallery to another level entirely.
Come hear from the AK and OMA regarding the next phase in the life of the gallery. Participate in an interactive session that will allow your voice to be heard.
This event is free and open to the public. See Facebook for details.
*FREE PARKING will be offered at the Fernbach Parking Ramp (200 Pearl Street). If you are unable to attend, a second interactive session will be held on Tuesday, November 1, 2016, with the location to be announced.
