Rebecca Haskins, a transfer student from Alfred State in our Interior Design bachelor’s program is having the experience of a lifetime in Italy! A native of the Albany, New York area, Rebecca is the VERY FIRST Villa Maria College study abroad student. She is spending her time relishing in the sites Italy has to offer while advancing her education. She sent us these photos with the message “Ciao From Italy!!”
Snow: A Mini-series
The snow falling outside the Albright-Knox today has inspired us to feature some of the snow-filled works in the Gallery’s Collection.
Alfred Stieglitz’s The Street, Fifth Avenue, 1896, was featured in the Gallery’s groundbreaking International Exhibition of Pictorial Photography (1910)—the first show organized by an American museum that aimed to elevate photography to an art form.
