Buffalo’s Public Art is Lookin’ Good

Before the paint has dried on one new mural, a bucket truck is rolling into place, paint is being mixed and another is underway these days in Buffalo. That’s only a slight exaggeration, as businesses, community groups, block clubs and artists join the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in creating new murals all over the city. There are massive celebrations of color, geometry and abstraction alongside comic book-style renderings, photo-realistic stencils, op-art, graffiti art and homages to rock stars dead and alive. World famous street artists share Buffalo’s walls with talented newcomers and commercial artists exploring a new medium. It’s an exciting time to walk Buffalo’s streets not knowing what visual treat lies around the next corner. While serendipity is almost always something to be savored, we thought we’d save you some time by putting together a guide to the best of Buffalo’s murals. Enjoy our open-air museum.
