Long Description:
About the Burchfield Penney Art Center, from their website, www.burchfield-penney.org/about/:

The artistic achievement of Charles E. Burchfield was honored with the creation of the Charles Burchfield Center at Buffalo State College, Buffalo, NY, on December 9, 1966. Burchfield died on January 11, 1967. In 1983, the Charles Burchfield Center was renamed the Burchfield Art Center to support its multi-arts focus. Between 1991 and 1994, the museum received a series of gifts from Charles Rand Penney, Ph.D., of more than 1,300 works by Western New York artists. Penney’s gift was of such significance that the Burchfield Art Center was renamed the Burchfield-Penney Art Center. Possibly the most important element of Penney’s gift was 183 works by Charles Burchfield. The Burchfield-Penney Art Center now possesses the world's largest, most comprehensive collection of Burchfield's art, as well as the archival materials, studio objects and memorabilia that reflect the artist’s life. Today, the Burchfield-Penney Art Center is a museum dedicated to the art and vision of Charles E. Burchfield and distinguished artists of Buffalo Niagara and Western New York State. Through its affiliation with Buffalo State College, the museum encourages learning and celebrates our richly creative and diverse community.
