July 2014 Photos

NE corner of Amherst and Grant.
"Conceptualized by  Lead Artist Marissa Lehner and ELAB President, Marcus L. Wise, the mural at the corner of Grant and Amherst Street, converted a blighted lot into a celebrated community work of art." - Grant/Amherst Community Mural Project on Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo website (online August 2014)

" Located at 388 Amherst Street at the intersection with Grant, the pre-designed mural features a large tree with roots sprawling through the bedrock of the community, a metaphor for its growth and change over time."  - Matthew Biddle, "A Mural-a-thon in Black Rock" in Buffalo Spree (online August 2014)
