It’s the last weekend to visit the Albright-Knox’s Elmwood Avenue campus before it shuts down for a major expansion project until 2022. So what’s next for the art gallery?

The latest designs for the Albright-Knox Art Gallery's planned expansion were unveiled Thursday. The museum will close for an extended period of time once construction begins later this year.
