Museum Archives and Special Collections

The Buffalo AKG Art Museum’s Archives and Special Collections include the official records of the museum’s governing body, the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy; documentation of artist interviews conducted by the Buffalo AKG; and special collections of archival material donated to the museum by artists, collectors, and others.

The term archival material denotes records that are preserved for their enduring legal, administrative, and/or historical value. Archival records may be in any format, and archival collections can include letters, postcards, meeting minutes, notebooks, typescripts, drafts, photographs, video recordings, audio recordings, and more.
