  • Loved the guided tour on a Sunday afternoon. The paperweight exhibit was awsome! We're glad they were able to bring it to this museum. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly!
  • I absolutely loved visiting the BPAC when I attended Buffalo State because of all the creative pieces of art that were on display. There is always a rich collection of contemporary and modern art being showcased which I am a huge fan of. A trip here any time of the day was extremely relaxing and so inspirational. Not enough students took advantage of the free admissions which is unfortunate. They frequently host events and invite key speakers, where you have the opportunity to learn a great deal and network with attendees. The BPAC was recently renovated and they installed projectors in front of the center that displays films on the center itself. It's a pleasure to watch it when the sun is down because you can see it clearly.
  • Beautiful gallery just opposite the Knox-Albright Gallery in Buffalo. Excellent layout and regularly changing exhibitions.
  • Very modern and open space. Terrific exhibits and wonderful exhibits opening parties held in the facility.
  • Well designed expansive gallery. I'm not personally a fan of Charles Birchfields work, however many contemporary and experimental come through here
