BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo's bright and colorful murals are a big hit on Instagram. Now, the city wants to add new photo-ops with a new piece of public art in the downtown entertainment district.
The Buffalo Arts Commission has a call out to artists for Instagram-worthy ideas for public art. The winning artist will have a budget of $40,000 to create a "fun, instantly memorable, and permanent in nature" display somewhere in the following areas:
- Court Street between Main Street and Niagara Square
- Franklin Street between Chippewa and Court Street
- Chippewa Street between Main Street and Elmwood Avenue
The deadline for proposals is February 12. The plan is for installation to begin in the spring.
