Fabric-covered buildings? They're coming soon to Buffalo

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:

Amanda Browder's "Spectral Locus," a public art project involving huge sheets of colored fabric, will temporarily transform the former church at Richmond Avenue and West Ferry later this summer.
