Albright-Knox has unveiled its latest public art display near the Tri-Main Building. This one might be a little more obscure due to the location, but it’s still super impressive. Artist Daniel Galas set out to create a series of murals that capture his take on the architecture located in the neighborhood. He has an art studio at Buffalo Arts Studio in the Tri-Main Center.
Black relates to the artist’s established practice of printmaking and drawing, and gold is meant to elicit an intuitive response from the viewer that acknowledges the civic value of honoring our shared heritage. – AK
The project is part of the Albright-Knox’s #AKPublicArt project that has been springing up all over the city. This particular work was created on the side of the Koch Metal Spinning building, which is located directly behind the Tri-Main Building, just off Main Street at 72 Jewett Avenue.
