Founded in 1966 on the campus of Buffalo State College, the Burchfield Penney Art Center is dedicated to the art and vision of renowned American watercolorist Charles E. Burchfield (1893-1967) and the distinguished artists of Western New York State. In 2008, the Burchfield Penney expanded from its location in Rockwell Hall to a new, freestanding $33 million facility in the heart of Buffalo’s Museum District. Designed by Gwathmey Siegel and Associates Architects, the museum includes more than 84,000 square feet dedicated primarily to galleries, and education and program space. It is home to the world’s largest collection of artwork and ephemera by Burchfield and a collection of more than 8,000 works by over 850 artists. The Burchfield Penney was the first LEED certified art museum in New York State and was included by travel editors of The New York Times as one of the “44 Top Places To Go in 2009.”
