City Hallways (Aug. 22): A new public art mural that's a little different

Not your regular mural

A new public art mural went up over the weekend in North Buffalo across the street from one that went up earlier this summer.

“Magic Buffalo” already was unveiled this past June on the Joe’s Deli building at the corner of Hertel Avenue and Colvin Boulevard.

The new mural — entitled “Buffalo” — is located on a building across the street at MVP Network Consulting at 1297 Hertel.

"Buffalo" is 30-feet wide and 20-feet high and celebrates Buffalo’s rich history, said Delaware District Councilman Joel Feroleto.

And there's something a little different about the new artwork. The image was printed on high resolution vinyl or latex. The process costs less than painted murals to produce, but it doesn't last as long, Feroleto said.

"A painting lasts 20 years. This is guaranteed for five years," Feroleto said. "But it costs less."

Zoom Copy, a local company, produced the new mural.

There are also plans for a local artist to create a third mural on Hertel Avenue.

Nature gets a helping hand

Help is on the way for what's regarded as the oldest tree in Buffalo.

The American sycamore is located at 404 Franklin St. and will get treatment as a proactive measure to preserve the tree.

City officials, residents and business owners will gather at the site this morning at 10 to announce proactive measures in the fight to save it.
