Which current Supreme Court Justice was born in Western New York?
What event led to Mayor Jimmy Griffin’s nickname, “Jimmy Six Pack”?
Which well-known 19th century author lived in Buffalo and served as editor for a local newspaper?
Which classic, surreal children’s novel published in 1865 “delighted” Charles E. Burchfield as he read it several times throughout his life?
We're celebrating our 50th anniversary during our 2016-17 season with all kinds of fun events, including a free monthly Trivia Night. Given the Center's mission to honor the vision of Buffalo-based painter Charles Burchfield and the countless artists who lived and worked in Western New York both before and after his lifetime (including right now!), the theme of our friendly little competition is WNY itself.
On the third Thursday of each month from January through April, we'll be asking you and your team questions about the history, art and artists, music, sports, politics, scandals, architecture, geography, and food and drink of Buffalo and the rest of our wonderful region—plus much, much more. Win valuable prizes! Meet old friends and make new ones! Impress your parents as you finally put that liberal arts degree to good use!
Each month we'll feature a Social Media category of questions that involve the museum itself—and we'll provide clues a few days in advance via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, so be sure to follow us there.
Food and drink will be available for purchase all night in the café.
Teams can consist of 1 to 6 people. Bring your team back every month—we'll keep track of your running score—and you might just win some really valuable prizes if yours ranks among the top three teams in the tournament!
No reservations necessary—just come early enough to get a good seat.
This event is free and open to the public.
