Artist Philip Burke was commissioned to create a portrait of the iconic Josh Allen hurdle, which stretched for the full two stories of the building. 

Burke has pained other murals around Buffalo, including Snoop Dogg on the side of Town Ballroom and a Goo Goo Dolls mural on the corner of Hertel and Lovering Avenues.

To create such large murals, Burke has a smaller version of the art blown up and then installed on building.
