Celebrating Women’s History Month with Special Tours in March

For the second year in a row, the Albright-Knox is leading a special series of public tours each Saturday in March to celebrate Women’s History Month. This year, the tours will focus on the special exhibition Agnes Martin: The New York–Taos Connection (1947–1957). Martin was one of the few women to stand out during a revolutionary period of American art in the 1940s and 1950s. Her meditative paintings, drawings, and writings have influenced generations of artists interested in abstraction. The tours will take place Saturdays, March 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30, at 1:30 pm.

This series of tours is offered in partnership with the Erie County Commission on the Status of Women and the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library in celebration of 2013 Women’s History Month.

All public tours are led by Gallery-trained docents and are free with Gallery admission.
