Community Canvases does what it does best in U Heights

After working on walls in the University District this past weekend, and then putting some additional hours into the start of the week, Vinnie Alejandro has finished another work of art that is dedicated to education in Buffalo. “It’s on a building at the corner of Main and W. Northrup across from the University Heights Tool Library (see Facebook) building,” Vinnie told me. “Chuck Tingley, Ogre, myself and a few others all painted there over the weekend as part of the Community Canvases effort.

A number of artists joined in on the fun, including Chuck Tingley, OGRE, Elyssa Harper, Daddy’s Garage, Rusker, Vintango, Vinny Alejandro, Steve Nagy. Here are a couple more photo montages from this past weekend that were posted on the Community Canvases Facebook page.
