Buffalo, You Are Beautiful

Sometimes it only takes three words to make someone smile. That’s one of the messages behind the latest billboards in Buffalo which are part of the Public Art Initiative. The Albright Knox has teamed up with Erie County to bring art outside the museum walls and into communities around the Queen City. Winging It’s Lauren Hall sat down with Public Art Curator for the Albright Knox, Aaron Ott, to discuss the artwork that has been on display around Buffalo. The tape art display at the Central Library downtown kicked off the initiative. Shark Girl quickly followed, bringing crowds of people to Canalside to take pictures with the statue. The most recent project is the “You Are Beautiful” billboards that are delighting drivers around the city. If you would like to learn more about the Public Art Initiative visit www.albrightknox.org
