Buffalo’s Must-See Public Art

Buffalo is a pleasantly artful place. And, thanks to a ramped up public arts initiative, has become even more aesthetically stunning in recent years. The walls, streets and landscapes of Buffalo’s neighborhoods have become a canvas – displaying vibrant massive murals, selfie-inspiring sculptures, and fun interactive creations from the likes of internationally recognized artists like Shantell Martin and Jessie & Katey. In addition to the several sculptures on display at the Albright-Knox, you’ll find visual stimulation in all corners of the region.

Home to the world famous Albright Knox Art Gallery, Burchfield Penney Art Center, a plethora of small community galleries and HQ of festivals like the Roycroft Campus Art Festivals, Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts and Allentown Art Festival, public appreciation of the arts has a long history in Buffalo.

Now, simply walking the streets of Buffalo is like taking a tour through a city-wide gallery. Check out our friends, Billy and Pat, showing off Buffalo’s newest murals and take a look at the gallery below for artist and location information for these murals and more.
