Albany- The "American Masters" show features 50 pieces by American artists from the past 200 years. They're arranged on a timeline marking important historical events.

This is the first traditional show the museum has had in four years. "I think that because were known more for doing contemporary pieces, I think people will really gravitate to some of the works from before 1900 or right around the turn of the century simply because they just don't get to see them that often," says curator, Aaron Berger.

The exhibition opened Friday and will be on display through August 3rd.
