In a socially distanced world, let us draw inspiration together. Join us for the Albright-Knox’s first virtual fundraiser as we celebrate two creative luminaries in a dazzling series. As the year 2020 comes to a close, enjoy virtual evenings amongst friends with cocktails and cuisine while engaging with some of the brightest lights in the culinary and art worlds.
In this second event in the series, celebrated abstract artist Stanley Whitney will provide an exclusive visit to his studio and a sneak preview of his first-ever museum survey exhibition, planned for 2023 at the Buffalo AKG Art Museum. The menu will take inspiration from the many summers Whitney has spent in Parma, Italy, where he has a studio.
Gourmet culinary packages are locally prepared by the extraordinary team at Current Catering.
Meal delivery has been made possible with the generous support of West Herr Automotive Group.
Assorted delicacies provided by DiCamillo Bakery, celebrating 100 years of artistic confections.
