New Downtown Mural Part of Albright Knox Public Art Initiative
There's a new mural being constructed right near our studios in downtown Buffalo.
It's part of the Albright Knox Public Art Initiative, which has been supporting efforts to create art in public spaces over the last few years in western New York.
The unnamed mural is located on the side of The Sinclair building at 425 Washington Street, and is by the artist Louise Jones.
According to the Albright Knox website, the mural "draws inspiration from the structure’s original tenets: an early-twentieth-century hat manufacturer. Based on conversations with building owners, historians, and horticulturalists, Jones has incorporated aspects of period design, hatpins, and flora native to Western New York into her composition, which builds on the dynamic and often borderless floral motifs found in her public works."
