A good day for art-hopping in Buffalo and the Northtowns

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

If you’re one of the lucky Western New Yorkers who have a snow day today but live outside the dreaded band of lake-effect snow that has hobbled much of the region, there’s no need to stay cooped up at home.

Consider a trip to a local museum or gallery, most of which fall outside the affected areas and therefore remain open for business. Just remember to wipe your boots.

Here’s a small sampling of local galleries and museums confirmed to be open today. Please feel free to add more in the comments, and call ahead to other galleries to make sure they’re open:
