If asked to choose between my love of Williams College and my love of architecture (especially early 20th century, prairie style architecture), I would be hard pressed to make a decision. Thankfully, Christine Roach ’88 was kind enough to show us two of Buffalo’s great cultural sights yesterday morning: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House, and the Albright-Knox Museum.
Our first stop was the Martin House. Jason and I are architecture nerds and were super excited, and Emily joined in the enthusiasm once she realized that Frank Lloyd Wright was a famous architect, not the inventor of the airplane. (Note to all future employers of Emily Flynn: please don’t take this as a statement on Emily’s intelligence. She was on the Dean’s list many times.) Here are some pictures of our visit:
Next, we headed to the Albright-Knox Museum, which was incredibly impressive. We saw works by Picasso, Renoir, Gaugin, Brancusi, Hartwell, Derain, Pollock, Dali, O’Keeffe and lots of others. The building was beautiful, too; we highly recommend a visit. Here are some pictures of us looking like intelligent, thoughtful, art historically knowledgeable Williams grads:
