The Center for the Study of Art, Architecture, History & Nature (C-SAAHN) sponsors the Noon-Hour Lecture/Discussion series on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at the Buffalo & Erie County Downtown Central Library. The theme for the 2010 - 2011 Series on the 4th Tuesday is "Why are Buffalo Niagara's Art, Architecture, History and/or Nature Important?"
Introduction by Chuck LaChiusa.
Francis R. Kowsky, author and retired SUNY Distinguished Professor of Fine Arts at Buffalo State College - Online publications - used images of many 19th Century American landscape artists to show their influence on Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in their design of the first American park system of parks connected with parkways - in Buffalo.
The entire presentation showed the inter-relationship of art, architecture, history, and nature in a harmonious fashion much to the satisfaction of the receptive audience.
