An official Path Through History Site! The Buffalo Fine Arts Academy -- operators of the Albright-Knox Arts Gallery -- was founded in December 1862, ranking it among the country`s oldest public arts institutions in the United States. An outstanding center of modern and contemporary art, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery has a 150-year tradition of collecting, conserving, and exhibiting the art of its time, giving rise to one of the world’s most extraordinary art collections. The Albright-Knox Art Gallery has temporarily closed its Elmwood Avenue campus to begin the construction phase of its AK360 Campus Development and Expansion Project. As part of the project, the museum will construct a signature new building on the north side of its campus and renovate its current facilities. Albright-Knox Northland, a new project space at 612 Northland Avenue in Buffalo, will open on January 17, 2020. The new Buffalo AKG Art Museum is expected to open in Spring 2022 on the Elmwood Avenue campus. Art Truck: The museum’s new Art Truck, a mobile center for hands-on art making, brings art activities, classes, and workshops for individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of ability into the communities of Western New York.
