East Aurora was a favorite painting locationfor Burchfield. I did a lot of my outdoor painting there as well.
Charles Burchfield's love of nature is reflected throughout the museum, including the museum's reception area where keen-eyed visitors will spot ceiling lights arranged as the constellation Orion emerging from a cloud, one of Burchfield's favorite constellations.
