Billboard declares “you are beautiful”

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Have you noticed billboards like the one along Rt. 198 near Buffalo State College that reads “you are beautiful” around the city?

The billboard is the work of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.

News 4 contacted officials to learn more about the billboard; they said more information will be released about the project next week.

It is possible this is a work of “public art” by the gallery, which so far this year has included “Shark Girl” at Canalside and a mural outside the downtown library made of painter’s tape.
