A true partner

The Burchfield Penney Art Center is an 84,000 square foot museum (over 100,000 square feet, including the Front Yard) located  on the campus of Buffalo State College. At the corner of Elmwood Avenue and Rockwell Road, across the street from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Burchfield Penney Art Center is in the heart of Buffalo’s Museum District. Designed by Gwathmey Siegel and Associates Architects, the museum is certified to the “Silver” LEED level by the U.S. Green Building Council, making it the first green art museum in New York State.

The museum is an independent 501(c)(3) organization, which maintains its integrity and autonomy while benefitting from meaningful collaboration with Buffalo State College. The largest comprehensive college in the State University of New York (SUNY) System, Buffalo State College is noted for its distinguished visual arts programs, including art conservation, art education, design, and fine arts, as well as the museum studies program, all of which will contribute to the operation, programming and vitality of the Burchfield Penney Art Center. Founded in 1871, the college offers 136 undergraduate and 63 graduate programs in the arts, sciences, professions and education. For more information, visit
