I agonized over this far too long…but I was forced to make a decision because my Groupon was about to expire. The top photo of Buffalo Central Terminal is now a 16”x24” metal print and will complement the lower photo that I purchased months ago.
A tribute to Buffalo Central Terminal, very nicely done.
It’s a bit long—an eight minute video—but I enjoyed watching the construction and usage during its heyday, transitioning to decline and disrepair to Simon and Garfunkel’s ”The Sounds of Silence”.
While making arrangements to pay for and pick up the light from Navarro Gallery in Toronto, Roberto Navarro dropped a nice Christmas surprise on me. He is going to donate the fixture back to the Central Terminal under the condition that we give the $3000 raised to the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation’s (CTRC) Adopt a Tile campaign. As you can imagine, my heart dropped and I can’t even describe how I felt when I heard…simply incredible news for this effort and for the Central Terminal.

So, I’ve given twice to the Buffalo Central Terminal Adopt-a-Tile campaign! Happy Holidays BCT and CTRC!
Two more from Buffalo Central Terminal.
Art made in places owned by others is a complex matter – on one hand illegal and on the other, sometimes heralded.
The late artists Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, were both reviled and applauded - threatened and rewarded - for their graffiti made in the streets of New York. These are images that were created today, made in Buffalo by anonymous artists together with the anonymous notes which accompanied them. The Burchfield Penney encourages the expression of ideas about this work.
