Buffalo art gallery exhibit honors late Buffalo Bills owner
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A Buffalo art gallery’s latest exhibit honors the late Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson Jr.
“Humble and Human” is a collaboration between the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo and the Detroit Institute of Arts in Wilson’s home state of Michigan.
Gallery administrators say the exhibition explores the work of impressionist and post-impressionist artists that Wilson was drawn to, including Paul Cezanne, Edgar Degas, Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet, while celebrating Wilson’s life.
After opening in Buffalo on Saturday, the exhibition will run through May 26. It will then shift to Detroit from June through October.
The exhibition coincides with the 100th anniversary of Wilson’s birth.
The National Football League owner died in 2014, leaving his fortune to help causes in southeast Michigan and western New York.
