Delaware Stairs Overlooking Hoyt Lake

During this 150th anniversary year, as a special thank you to our loyal Members and our entire community, we are thrilled to invite you to experience the first large-scale 3D video projection mapping project presented in Western New York on Friday, October 5, 2012, at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.

Gather on the Delaware Park side of the Gallery to witness the 1905 Albright Building come alive with color, light, and movement. The Gallery’s story will be told through never-before-seen images from our archives, as well as highlights from our famed Collection.

Two viewings of the projection will begin at 7:30 and 8:30 pm. Music by Projex, a "participate" art activity, and local food trucks will add to the entertainment.

This community-wide celebration of the Gallery’s 150th anniversary will be presented free as part of M&T FIRST FRIDAYS @ THE GALLERY. The Gallery will be open free from 10 am to 10 pm, with M&T FIRST FRIDAYS activities all day. The outdoor fun begins at 6 pm.

Event Recap

On Friday, October 5, the Gallery hosted the first large-scale 3D video projection mapping project in Western New York for a great crowd from our community. This celebration of the Gallery’s 150th anniversary was presented free for all as part of M&T FIRST FRIDAYS @ THE GALLERY

Guests experienced the Delaware façade of the 1905 Albright Building transformed through a custom projected video which combined highlights from the Gallery’s Collection and never-before-seen images from the archives with colorful abstract animations. The festivities also included music by Projex, a caravan of local food trucks, and an opportunity to decorate and submit PARTICIPATE coloring cards for the upcoming exhibition Color 150

None of this would have been possible without the generosity of our many sponsors. The Gallery extends a special thanks to Presenting Sponsors M&T Bank and The Advantage Company and everyone who helped make the evening a huge success!
