Come be part of Albright-Knox’s Education Team and an integral part of AK360 and the Expansion of the Elmwood Avenue campus.
To fulfill the Albright-Knox’s mission to serve the public, changes are needed to create a more sustainable museum for the twenty-first century. The Albright-Knox and our visitors will greatly benefit from the addition of space to accommodate and exhibit our Fine Art Collection, which experts consider a national treasure. Studies also indicate that there is community demand for a flexible civic event space that can host events throughout the year. Education programming requires additional classrooms to better serve our audiences, including the region’s schoolchildren.
