Mel Camp gets a crash course on all the wonderful assets here in Western New York including our world class Albright Knox Art Gallery. Some of the art that’s there you can’t see now. They are closed for renovations. However, all of their programming that they were doing, even though the gallery has been closed, has had to move online including a beloved competition that happens every year where people dress up as their favorite painting. They recreate art as people. Normally this happens on the back lot of the museum and this year they are forced to do it online in a socially distant version of the competition. The gallery has found people all over the world who want to take part.
