More Beautiful Buildings: Up Close and Personal

Today’s collection of beauties is a study in detail.  Buffalo is covered with a massive collection of public art in the form of the craft applied to its treasure trove of high quality architecture.  Walk your city and soak in the artistry of decades long past.  Who carved these things?  Who conceived them?  Maybe the artist lived in your house, returning home to hug his kids after a long day chipping away at stone, wood, clay and plaster. This is your heritage.  This is America’s heritage.  We have been entrusted with this wonderful gift.  It is ours to enjoy. It is our responsibility to care for it and to pass it down to future generations.
