Buffalo Collection

Robert Wilson came to Buffalo, NY, in 1963, after being offered a position in the Design Department by Dr. Stanley Czurles, Director of Art Education at Buffalo State. By this time Robert had published several books on media, design and education, including “An Alphabet of Visual Experience” and “The Role of Crafts in Education”. At the time, the Buffalo State Design department was a team of forward thinking artists and craftsmen from all over the United States.

Robert showed his work throughout the area and was a frequent guest artist and lecturer at colleges throughout the Northeast.

One of the many things that Robert enjoyed about living in Buffalo were the number of large historic homes that were not only affordable, but provided enough space for a large studio, library and a place to house his collections of art and antiques.
