City Hallways (May 5) They do more than create masterpieces

Cute and talented

The PreK students at Buffalo Public Schools are as cute as they are talented.

We told you earlier this week that the artwork of budding Picassos, Chihulys and Monets are on display on the first floor of City Hall.

It's part of the school district's "50th Annual Prekindergarten Art Show."

Well, yesterday there was a reception with PreK students from schools #61 and #80, who performed a few songs and got a few encouraging words from Mayor Brown.

The exhibit - called "Pre-K Picassos" - is a collection of "masterpieces" from 165 public schools and community-based sites. Each classroom had one piece of artwork created by all of the children.

It runs until May 31.

Historic Preservation on a national level

Here's a bit of interesting news for all you preservationists and history buffs out there.

The Delaware Avenue Church at 965 Delaware Ave. and the former Linde Air Manufacturing facility at 155 Chandler St. are being considered next month for nomination to the state and national registers of historic places.

The church is noted for its Romanesque Revival style that was popular from the late 1800s to early 1900s.

The Linde building was used as part of the Manhattan Project during World War II.

The state Board for Historic Preservation will review the buildings next month for nomination.

I'll keep you posted.
