Buffalo is being transformed by murals, both outside and inside. Some are scenic, like "Wildflowers for Buffalo," and some are geometric, like "Optichromie," both on Washington Street. Some murals are sponsored by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, such as "Noodle in the Northern Lights on Tupper Street, while others are privately financed, such as "Greetings from Buffalo" on Ellicott Street.
On this downtown walking tour, we will explore many of downtown's murals. Our tour will include both exterior murals, like "Misuta Chow's Dual Dragons" on Washington Street, as well as indoor murals, like "George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette" inside the Lafayette Hotel. More murals are being painted throughout the summer, so this tour will evolve as new murals emerge downtown!
