Historypin Tours Featured in the Buffalo News

December 3, 2013

A screencapture of the Albright-Knox walking tour of outdoor sculpture made with Historypin.

A feature article in the Buffalo News on December 3, 2013, highlights the launch of our Historypin walking tours that explore local art and history. Using software that is accessible by computer and smart phone, the tours allow users to explore outdoor sculpture on the museum's grounds and the architectural treasures of downtown Buffalo. These are the first of several tours created by Albright-Knox Digital Media Manager Kelly Carpenter and Digital Collections and Services Assistant Sarah Klawinski.

The article also highlights the growing trend among museums locally and nationally to expand information about collections, history, and art into publically available digital resources. Along with other local cultural institutions, we are excited to lead the push into the digital realm and to make more of our Collection and history available to the public. The introduction of the Historypin platform at the Albright-Knox is one of many new and exciting digital projects that are currently underway.
