Walk Around the Albright Knox: Classical contrasts with contemporary


Around the corner from The Blue Spikes, the classical design of the main building reveals itself - as a part of the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo in 1901, the Albright Knox was a centerpiece of cutting edge design.

I love the contrast between the classical and the contemporary. The sculptures around The Knox are modern while most of the gallery was built during the Victorian Era.



The folds of the robes are so life like, it looks as if the wind could blow through them! What do you think?

You are so right about the contrast! What an amazing place to walk and see. Thank you for sharing with us, Cindy! Yes, the gowns look very much ready to move in the wind!
