Picasso. Matisse. Miró. Pollock. Warhol. The Albright-Knox Art Gallery is known to have one of the most intimate, significant and impressive modern and contemporary art collections in the world. And when you've tired of masterworks from the 20th and 21st century (as if that's possible) you'll also find impressionist and post-impressionist works by Gauguin, Cezanne and Van Gogh to soothe your aesthetic soul.
You simply can't claim to know the modern masters without a visit to Buffalo's "temple for the arts." So make plans to visit soon! An outstanding center of modern and contemporary art, the Albright-Knox collection belongs among the world's top international surveys of 20th century painting and sculpture. Exhibitions and installations subject to change. M&T First Fridays is held on the first Friday of each month. Admission to the gallery on M&T First Friday is free, with special programs and events for the whole family, and the gallery extends its hours from 10 a.m. -10 p.m. (only on the first Friday of each month.)
