About the 2011 Future Curators

Now in its sixth year, Future Curators is a weekly after-school program in which students participate in an in-depth, behind-the-scenes experience at the Albright-Knox. This year's dynamic team of young artists, art historians, writers, and musicians was selected from a pool of applicants and began the program in January 2011. Their exhibition, raw, will be on view at the Gallery from Friday, May 6, through Sunday, July 3, 2011. Learn More about the 2011 Future Curators


On the First Friday of every month—from 10 am to 10 pm—admission to the Gallery's Collection, and to most events and performances, is free for everyone. See full schedule for Friday, May 6, 2011
