The first museum to exhibit photography as art. The first woman director of a major museum. A 150-year commitment to collecting contemporary art. One of the most successful partnerships in museum history. In celebration of The Buffalo Fine Arts Academy’s 150th birthday, Curator of Education Mariann Smith will introduce you to many of the people, events, works of art, and exhibitions that have made the Albright-Knox Art Gallery what it is today—an internationally known center of modern and contemporary art.
