Elmwood Avenue Campus

The Albright-Knox's Elmwood Avenue campus is situated at the edge of Buffalo’s Delaware Park, designed by America’s foremost landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted. Its main buildings—one neoclassical and one modern—were designed by celebrated American architects Edward B. Green, of Green & Wicks, and Gordon Bunshaft, of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill.

A third building, Clifton Hall, houses staff offices. The museum’s main entrance is located on Elmwood Avenue, directly across from the Burchfield Penney Art Center at Buffalo State, and its east side overlooks Hoyt Lake. Our campus features a number of outdoor sculptures that we invite you to explore at any time.
