Art Alive!

[ART PARTY] When Arrested Development conceived of the annual event in which George Bluth poses as God to his son Buster’s Adam in a living re-enactment of Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam, Buffalonians (like me) thought: Huh. After all, we’ve been doing this for years. Art Alive! at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery is one of the summer’s funnest kickoff events, drawing student groups, businesses and charitable organizations, families, and a smattering of who-knows-who-else to create living tableaux drawn from famous works of art on the gallery’s back lawn. (Or is it the front lawn? In any case, facing the park.) There’s $1,000 in prizes for the best re-creation of a work from the AKAG collection, for best craftsmanship, and for most unusual entry, among other awards. It all happens Saturday, June 3, noon to 2pm. It’s a Buffalo art party, so there will be food trucks!



We're sorry, this event has already taken place!
