The 157th Annual Meeting of The Buffalo Fine Arts Academy

With Special Guest Speaker Seth Godin

Wednesday, October 2, 2019 ● 6 pm


Albright-Knox Members, please join us on October 2 to reflect on the year’s events, thank our dedicated supporters, and mark the progress of our AK360 Campus Development and Expansion Project with a special guest speaker, Seth Godin.

Seth’s world-renowned work on creativity is timely for our museum. The Albright-Knox’s Strategic Plan, Connecting Art, Ideas, and People, challenges us to find new ways to serve as a resource for our region and foster creativity in all corners of Western New York. Every day, we work on building an environment where people can come together to engage with art, ideas, and each other. As part of this challenge, we are retooling the Annual Meeting format to one that creates such an opportunity for Members. You will still hear remarks from Peggy Pierce Elfvin Director Janne Sirén, and you will find pertinent statistics, accomplishments, and financial information in our Annual Report, which will be shared on our website following the meeting.

As we consider the next phase in our beloved museum’s evolution, we hope you will join us to be inspired and to celebrate our exciting future.

Active AK Members are asked to RSVP to 716.270.8247 or If you would like to attend but are not an active Member, we invite you to join or renew now.
