Burchfield Penney Art Center

1300 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14221 - United States





The Burchfield Penney Art Center is the heart of Western New York culture, celebrating the region’s diverse art and artists, preserving their vital legacy through a growing permanent collection and professionally managed archives.

The Center is also home to the world’s largest collection of Charles E. Burchfield’s work, including paintings, sketches, journals, even a re-creation of the artist’s studio. This American Master’s vision, his constant exploration and reinvention, inspires everything we do at the Center. But his work is only part of what’s experienced here.

We are a vibrant arts center, curating and contextualizing a dynamic range of engaging exhibitions, events and programs, educational impacts, and inspiring connections that honestly reflect our individual humanity, while revealing and strengthening the common bonds that vitalize our community.
