Murals of Buffalo, NY
Public art is an important element to a city, adding vibrancy and creativity to our public spaces for everyone to enjoy. It humanizes a once plain, empty wall or building. It plays into how we celebrate work / life balance. Most importantly it gives us community pride, a sense of belonging, and enhances our quality of life.
Buffalo has quickly expanded it's library of murals over the past few years, largely thanks to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery Public Art Initiative. Recently I'd snap a picture if I came across a mural while shooting something else, with the idea of eventually putting together this blog post. Here is a semi-complete list of murals by neighborhood, which I'll continue to add to in the future. Enjoy!
