New York City’s oldest museum, the Foosans, celebrates its 100th anniversary this month.
But the art collection’s first stop in Buffalo isn’t the Museum of Modern Art or the Museum Art Museum of Buffalo.
The Foans are in Buffalo, and the museum will be located in a renovated building that was once a hotel, now an arts and culture center, according to the museum’s website.
The museum, which opened in 1893, will be the largest museum of modern art in the United States, the website states.
It’s slated to open in 2021.
The building that housed the museum in 1893 was also the site of the famous “Ticket to Ride” ride that featured an 18-wheeler that was the vehicle of choice for Buffalo and Erie Railroad workers during the Great Depression.
The original ticket was for $50, which is now $25.
“We wanted to create a space that’s welcoming to the public,” said curator David Smith, who will lead the museum.
“It’s a beautiful piece of modern history that’s also an exciting place to explore the history of art and modern art.
The story of the Ticket to Ride is a classic example of how a small community, a small city, the United Sates, could unite to create something that’s so significant in its own right.”
The building, which has been turned into an arts center, has been used for other purposes, including a museum and a library, according the museum website.
It has also hosted art and performance programs.
“A lot of people don’t know that this was the site where the horse ride was, the 18- wheeler that had the ticket,” Smith said.
“The idea of this museum was to have the museum be a gateway to the city and a place to see art in Buffalo and to explore that in a unique way.”
The museum’s site plan includes a pedestrian bridge across the river that runs through the museum, an indoor museum gallery, a new, larger gallery that includes art from the collection, and a new sculpture garden.
The city’s arts commissioner, Daniel S. Sullivan, praised the museum for creating “an exciting new museum that will be a destination for the community.”
