Mayor Brown and Dr. Siren Deliver A Public Art Presentation To Local Developers
December 10, 2014 - Mayor Byron W. Brown and Albright-Knox Art Gallery Director Dr. Janne Sirén hosted a breakfast today for local developers titled Improving Your Assets: Public Art and Private Development. This unique presentation, sponsored by the City of Buffalo Arts Commission, was held at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. The purpose of the event was to raise awareness in the local development community about how public art can further expand economic revitalization efforts in Buffalo.
“With over $5 billion in new economic development activity underway, resulting in over 12,000 new jobs, the City of Buffalo continues its commitment to embracing public art and diversity as a catalyst for future economic development activity,” said Mayor Brown. “By strategically placing public art in places, we know we will continue to draw more interest and traffic from city residents and visitors and today I encourage Buffalo’s development community to consider incorporating public art into its upcoming projects.”

The Summit’s agenda will also allow opportunities for the Mayors to do presentations on theparticular developments in their areas as well as get advice from legal experts.
