On November 16, 2013, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery welcomed guests to view the landmark exhibition Anselm Kiefer: Beyond Landscape at a sold-out black-tie fundraising gala presented by M&T Bank and Delaware North Companies. The evening’s gourmet meal was inspired by the work of Anselm Kiefer, comprising elements of German culinary heritage and contemporary international cuisine, and was generously provided by Delaware North Companies. Following dinner, guests danced to music by Twilight in the Gallery’s Sculpture Court.

The Albright-Knox extends its appreciation to honorary chairpersons Alice and Jeremy Jacobs, Jr., and Sonja and Janne Sirén as well as event chairpersons Tom and Martha Hyde and Sarah Williams and Robert J. Bojdak.
