From January to May 2012, this exceptional team of young artists, art historians, writers, mathematicians, 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 2012 Future Curators’ exhibition of artwork by local high school students—Calloused—was on view at the Albright-Knox May 3–June 17, 2012, with an exhibition opening celebration planned by the team on May 3.
