The annual Mariner Street block party was the backdrop Saturday for the unveiling of the restored Sydney Montague sculpture "Mother Allied."
"After 30 years of Buffalo weather and a recent attack of vandalism, we thought it was time for a face lift," said Joe Buscaglia, who owns the art work.
Sydney Montague, formerly of Buffalo, is an award-winning and nationally recognized artist. The restoration was done by John Puccio.
"Mother Allied" will stand at its original site at 142 Mariner St., which also is the site of Buscaglia's business, Base 2 Companies.
