Please join us for a free public opening of the special exhibitions Overtime: The Art of Work and Eye to Eye: Looking Beyond Likeness.

Inspired by works in the Albright-Knox’s collection—from which more than half the exhibition is drawn—Overtime: The Art of Work examines the ways artists choose to represent work and workers. The exhibition, spanning from the late 18th century to the present, is organized by Curator Cathleen Chaffee.

Eye to Eye: Looking Beyond Likeness, organized by Godin-Spaulding Curator & Curator for the Collection Holly E. Hughes, is a Collection-based exhibition that examines how social conventions and artistic practice have shaped the genre of portraiture from the late eighteenth century to post-modernity.

A cash bar will be available in the Sculpture Court.
