Gallery Announces 2011 Schedule for AT WORK, Its Innovative Program for Businesses

February 8, 2011

Buffalo, NY – The Albright-Knox Art Gallery announced the 2011 schedule for its AT WORK program today. This year’s program will feature speakers Alphonso O’Neil-White of HealthNow New York in March and Professor Mark Bartholomew of the University at Buffalo Law School in September. The schedule also includes a series of workshops and discussions designed to stimulate creative thinking and develop the problem-solving skills of area business employees. AT WORK events are held monthly throughout the year and are open to companies supporting the museum through this unique partnership program. Membership in the program is open to all companies in the area.

Announcing the schedule, Gallery Director Louis Grachos said: “We have an exciting and varied program for 2011 and invite all companies, small, medium, and large, to participate and support the Gallery. The events are fun—often stimulating lively discussion—and they provide terrific networking opportunities as well.”
