    Wow! Dr. Kowski is still at SUC at Buff!
    He’s really interesting and has been mining the territory for at least 20 years. His American Art history class was one of my favorites.
    I’ll never forget his “Go Look At” list of buildings to see in Buffalo. My class mate & I were lucky enough to have an old bomb of a car so we would go & explore the list. One day we went to a Frank Lloyd Wright house, I believe on Tillinghast. We were just standing outside admiring it when a lady opened the door. We explained that we were American Art History students & her house was on the list of “to sees.” She kindly invited us in and showed us around the first floor. I’ve never forgotten it.
    He’s a GREAT teacher. His talk should interesting!
