New banners celebrating a transforming Chippewa Street in downtown Buffalo were unveiled Friday by the Chippewa Alliance.
The brightly colored banners, hanging from the entertainment district’s streetlights, declared “Chippewa Alive” and promote the hashtag #ChippewaStreet.
The alliance – a broad collaboration of businesses, schools and residents – aims to beautify the street with the new banners but also highlight the changes sparked by new development and investment on the street.
Evergreen Health Services, a member of the alliance and downtown development stakeholder, funded the banner project. Freelance designer, Cody Weiler provided pro bono creative services.
