She's baaack! Shark Girl is back on display at Canalside

Albright-Knox posted a picture on social media showing Shark Girl back at her usual spot.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Canalside has been a little empty without a certain someone. But don't worry, she's back! 

Albright-Knox posted on social media Wednesday that Shark Girl is back at her normal spot at Canalside.

Shark Girl has been off display since October 2019 for a much-needed touch up.

The statue got 10 coats of paint after a lot of wear and tear from being on display. 

The project cost $50,000. She was supposed to be back on display in early 2020, but the pandemic caused that project to get a little delayed.

Shark Girl was created by artist Casey Riordan in 2013. Shark Girl was one of the first public art initiatives for the Albright Knox Art Gallery.
