Albright-Knox Art Gallery

1285 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo, NY 14222, USA

This museum is currently closed for construction until 2022. Albright-Knox Northland, a new project space at 612 Northland Avenue, will open on January 17, 2020.

One of Buffalo’s most well-known attractions, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery showcases an impressive collection of more than 6,500 works, with a focus on modern and contemporary art. Featured artists range from such big names as Degas, van Gogh, Matisse, Gauguin, and Frida Kahlo to Henry Moore, Jasper Johns, and Jackson Pollock. Sign up for an hour-long, docent-led tour to learn more about the pieces on display—including Convergence, Pollock’s monstrous, 8-by-12-foot oil-on-canvas—then head outside and walk the grounds, which are dotted with a number of domineering sculptures.
