Albright-Knox requests more time to address expansion plan concerns

May 2, 2019

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery has asked the Buffalo Preservation Board for a two-week delay in considering questions about the gallery’s major renovation and expansion plan.

At a mid-April meeting, the board approved several parts of the plan, but had concerns about the main building’s design.

The museum will be closed for an extended period of time, once construction on the project begins later this year. Some programming will be moved offsite to a space on Northland Avenue, while additional programming will be made available in a mobile display.

Gallery officials are expected to expected to return to address design concerns at the Preservation Board’s next meeting on May 16.
