Public Art

Murals and more in WNY




Buffalo will welcome the approaching cold weather with a vivid streetscape, thanks to the dozens of murals that have been proliferating on exterior walls over the past five–ten years. Many of them are part of the city’s new public art initiative, in partnership with the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and Erie County.  We’ve talked to some of the artists and organizers of this activity and included as many images as we could of the results, as well as some older works that have been gracing public spaces for decades.
