BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- It was a perfect night at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo for its summer event "atmosphere" Thursday evening. It celebrated two groundbreaking exhibits including Videosphere: A New Generation, where video, film, and computer animation become art. And a toast was made to a monumental new canoe sculpture by Nancy Rubins which sits in front of the gallery.

The event also included hot air balloon rides. "We have the opening of the Videosphere which is the largest multimedia exhibit of its kind in the world," Peter Hunt, Buffalo Fine Arts Academy board of trustees member, said. "We are lighting for the first time our canoe sculpture by Nancy Rubins. This is a major day in the life of our gallery."

Videosphere will be at the art gallery through October 9th.
