Bunnie Reiss’s mural for the Hertel Avenue location of Joe’s Deli, entitled Magic Buffalo, features her signature interweaving of dreamlike imagery and mythological themes with delicate geometric tracery. Her work is influenced by her Polish and Russian heritage—especially Poland’s brightly colored folk art and the magical worlds of Russian fairytales—as well as her interest in unseen histories and our connection to animals and nature.
This mural has been made possible in part by the City of Buffalo and Council Member Joel Feroleto. Additional support has been provided by Joe’s Deli. AK Public Art mural projects are generously underwritten by the New Era Cap Foundation.
