|Based on the downward trend in local COVID-19 cases, the museum will reopen its doors to the public. “Prioritizing health and safety, the declining trajectory indicates we can safely resume operations,” said interim director Scott Propeack. “We continue to follow guidance from SUNY Buffalo State, CDC, U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), as well as recommendations from federal/state/local health officials.”|
The Charles E. Burchfield: A Lifetime of Themes exhibition run has been extended to May 1, 2022. See you soon!?
