From January to May 2011, this dynamic team of young artists, art historians, writers, and musicians used the Albright-Knox’s collection to explore new ways of looking at art and learned what goes on behind-the-scenes at the museum from various staff members.

The 2011 Future Curators’ exhibition of artwork by local high school students—raw—was on view at the Albright-Knox May 6–July 3, 2011, with an opening celebration on May 6 as part of M&T FIRST FRIDAYS.
