Attraction Spotlight: Burchfield Penney Art Center
The Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo is a truly one-of-a-kind experience that features a dedicated and ever-changing array of exhibitions. Still in its relative youth, the gallery only opened in 2008, it has already established itself among the other cultural hubs vying for your attention in the heart of the museum district.
Taking its name from famous watercolorist Charles E. Burchfield, it also has an extensive collection of his works while even the building itself abides his naturalistic philosophy. From the deliberate colour palette, big open spaces, long straight hallways, and even ceiling lights arranged in the constellation of Orion, the building is a beautiful sight. It is also the first green certified art museum in New York State, an accolade Burchfield himself would have been proud of.
The works of art on display are on constant rotation, changing up to 30 times a year, sourced from both the art center’s collection in addition to loaned exhibitions and temporary displays. No matter how often you visit, no two trips will be the same. The museum also has a particular focus on local art and champions art on a very local level, thus all the artwork on display was created by local artists or in the surrounding area, and so you can feel a real sense of authenticity and home pride as you tour the incredibly differing styles and paintings.
Located opposite the Albright-Knox Museum of Art, a visit to the Burchefield can easily be enjoyed as part of a day out that immerses you in culture, art, and creativity.
