BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Friends of the Buffalo plan to create a series of public art murals to captivate attention and tell a story.
The photographic murals will be installed onto buildings along the East Ferry corridor. The project is funded by a $100,000 grant from the National Endowment of the Arts.
Project Director, Marissa Lehner tells News 4, it is important to showcase the images to help identify the city. They hope to represent past generations and show how Buffalo has evolved.
The photographs were found in the archives of the Buffalo History Museum. Many taken by photographer William Westhphal, during the 1920s.
With no information offered to
go with the photographs, Friends of the Buffalo are encouraging Buffalo residents to offer their thoughts and captions for the photos.
