    What is public art? It is art that is outside and anyone can view it you don't have to go to a Museum. It is art for everyone. It can be a mural on the side of a building or a sculpture. There may be some in your neighborhood.

    Freedom Wall

    Freedom Wall

    Location: Michigan Avenue and East Ferry Street

    Earlier this year you may have taken the virtual Field Trip I created, now go see the wall in person. 

    The Albright-Knox Art Gallery Public Art Initiative, in collaboration with the Michigan Street African-American Heritage Corridor and neighborhood stakeholders, envisioned this mural as a way to celebrate our nation’s historic and ongoing struggles for political and social equality, including the formative and lasting contributions of local leaders to this cause.

  • Field Trip to Griffis Sculpture Park

    Posted by LAURA MINOR on 6/10/2020

    Griffis Sculpture Park Tower Sculpture

    Griffis Sculpture Park

    Locations:6902 Rohr Rd, East Otto, NY 14729 

    6902 Mill Valley Rd, East Otto, NY 14729

    The Griffis Sculpture Park is really worth a visit. It is about an hour away from school. Take a picnic and make a day out of it. Please note there are 2 sections of the park about 2 minutes apart. 

    About the park:

    Since the early ’60s, the steel sculptures of Larry Griffis, Jr. and other international artists have been residing in the woods, fields, and even ponds of Griffis Sculpture Park. The 450 acre Ashford Hollow park, located eight miles outside of Ellicottville, is not only a tremendous regional attraction but holds the distinction of being one of America’s largest and oldest sculpture parks.

    The park features over 250 large scale sculptures dispersed through miles of hiking trails. Each sculpture was placed with the natural setting in mind, creating a truly unique experience between art and nature.

    The park is actually split into two sections: Rohr Hill Road Site and Mill Valley Road Site. The Rohr Hill area is characterized by towering sculptures set in fields and woods just off the road. The Mill Valley Road Site features both a smooth walk area, as well miles of trails through a variety of terrain.
