For the past several weeks, Buffalonians have been working with New York City-based artist Amanda Browder to sew together what will become one of the more eye-popping public art projects in recent memory.
Browder's project, "Spectral Locus," will cover in multi-colored fabric large sections of the former Richmond Methodist Episcopal Church at Richmond Avenue and West Ferry Street; the Eckhardt Building at 950 Broadway; and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery's Clifton Hall.
Once installed, that fabric - knit together in a series of public sewing sessions led by Browder - will look something like this:

Stay tuned for more on the project as it moves toward its final stages in July.
