The Albright-Knox’s Archives include the official records of the museum’s governing body, The Buffalo Fine Arts Academy; documentation of artist interviews conducted by the Albright-Knox; and special collections of archival material donated to the museum by artists, collectors, and others.
The term archival material denotes records that are preserved for their enduring legal, administrative, and/or historical value. Archival records may be in any format, and archival collections can include letters, postcards, meeting minutes, notebooks, typescripts, drafts, photographs, video recordings, audio recordings, and more.
The museum’s Archives are available by appointment to docents, students, scholars, university and college faculty, and others in the community with advanced research needs. To schedule an appointment, please contact Processing Archivist Gabrielle Carlo at 716.270.8275 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special Archival Collections
The Albright-Knox holds several special collections of archival materials that were donated to us because they pertain to artists or artworks in our Fine Art Collection.
