Erie County: You Are Beautiful — Over the Labor Day holiday weekend, billboards began to appear across Erie County bearing a simple message to residents: “You Are Beautiful.” The work is part of the Public Art Initiative, a collaboration between the Albright-Knox, Erie County, and the City of Buffalo that seeks to enrich the lives of area residents by placing significant works of art in public locations throughout the region. The billboards will be highly visible throughout the county until mid-December. The art is the work of Chicago-based artist and designer Matthew Hoffman. The Erie County presentation of the work is the most immersive presentation that the artist has created to date. Hoffman is scheduled to visit Buffalo in November.

Public Art Initiative — The deadline for the next project in the Public Art Initiative for October is at 5 p.m. Sept. 26. As many as 200 county residents will participate in the creation of an arena painting with national known, Buffalo-born artist Charles Clough. The massive painting will be made on Oct. 25 at the William E. Swan Auditorium at Hilbert College in Hamburg. The completed work will be installed in the newly renovated Hamburg Public Library in mid-December.
