Monet and the Impressionist Revolution Exhibit is amazing! The exhibit is must see and will be at the Albright-Knox until the end of March. Take the afternoon, have lunch in the restaurant in the gallery and take in some amazing Monet works.

The Monet and Expressionism special exhibit - on until the end of March 2016 - was excellent. Well worth the admission price.
