Burchfield City Sites and Brunch Tour: April 14
The Burchfield Penney Art Center will host a lecture and bus tour of Burchfield’s city sites on Sunday, April 14, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Visit the places Charles E. Burchfield lived and see firsthand the sites he painted in Buffalo. Nancy Weekly, head of collections, Charles Cary Rumsey curator, and Burchfield scholar, will present a lecture during a coffee hour at the museum. Then we will tour the city on a coach bus as Weekly identifies buildings and locations, such as the site of the former M. H. Birge & Sons Company and the Niagara Mohawk Building. Brunch will be served at Butterwood Sweet and Savory at the Lafayette Hotel in downtown Buffalo. This tour is a wonderful way to see Buffalo from a new perspective in celebration of Buffalo State's Year of the City.
