The Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo is dedicated to contemporary and modern art, and is part of one of the country's oldest public art institutions.
The Buffalo Fine Arts Academy was founded in 1862, and is the group that oversees the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, which opened in 1905. The gallery originally opened as the Albright Art Gallery, named after the man who financed it, but a major addition was added in 1962 by a man whose name was added to the gallery's name as well.
The collection of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery includes Picasso, Matisse, Miro, Mondrian, Gorky, Pollock, Warhol, and more. There are some pieces that pre-date the modern and contemporary art movements, too, including works by Gauguin and Van Gogh.
The Albright-Knox Art Gallery is located across from Buffalo State College in Buffalo's Delaware Park. Tickets to the gallery are $12 for adults, $8 for seniors and students (age 13 and up), and $5 for children ages 6-12. The gallery is open Tuesday-Sunday 10am-5pm, except for the first Friday of every month when it closes at 10pm and entry is free for everyone.
