A New Visual Arts Review for Western New York and Southern Ontario

Cornelia is a visual arts review magazine published 3-times a year and published by the Buffalo Institute for Contemporary Art.

Named in honor of Cornelia Bentley Sage Quinton —a painter as well as the first woman to serve as the director of an art museum in the US at the Albright Knox and the only Buffalonian to serve as the director of the museum — we hope to honor and record the history and future contributions of the arts in this region for national and international dialogues.

On August 24th we launched the first issue, distributing 1,500 copies of the proof-of-concept publication across 30+ locations around Buffalo, Rochester, Toronto and points between.

We aim to build this into a sustainable publication using a sponsored advertising model. Other arts organizations and for-profit businesses can sponsor our publication in return for advertisements. There are currently no places to advertise specifically to the arts and culture community in our region, so this is a great way to promote upcoming exhibitions, events, programs, or products.
