Beginning in January 2014, this dynamic team of young artists, art historians, actors, writers, and entrepreneurs has been learning what goes on behind the scenes at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, and using the museum's collection to discover new ways of looking at art. Stay tuned as they begin to design their own exhibition.

The 2014 Future Curators' exhibition of artwork by local high school students—A Study in Action/Reactionwill be on view at the Albright-Knox from Friday, May 2, through Sunday, June 8, 2014, with an exhibition opening celebration planned by the team on Thursday, May 1, from 5 to 8 pm. It will also be on view at the Larkin Art Gallery from Monday, May 5, through Saturday, May 31, 2014, with an exhibition opening celebration on Tuesday, May 6, from 4 to 5 pm.
