Albright Art Gallery: Past Exhibitions, 1913-1962

The exhibition history for the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy and Albright Art Gallery from 1913-1962.

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery's 150-year tradition of collecting, conserving, and exhibiting the art of its time has given rise to one of the world’s most extraordinary art collections. Thomas Hoving, art historian and former director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, said that "the Albright-Knox Art Gallery should be on everyone’s list to see, for it’s an overwhelming art experience. Small, intimate, and seductive, the museum has one of the most thumping modern and contemporary collections in the world."
