Show titles in order of occurrence to date:
Window Shopping: Art Pop Up is a multiple-venue, one-week-only series of installations on view from July 24 through July 31, 2020 at 13 locations across the City of Buffalo. Artists will showcase place-based work created during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Buffalo East, was the first installment of this ongoing pop-up series, and was held at Saddle Up Saloon on Buffalo’s East Side.
Buffalo Works took place at Buffalo Paint and Wallpaper on Bailey Ave and directed the lenses of ten photographers toward the people, places, and things that represent the city at work
Buffalo South, about the City of Buffalo south of the I-190 and east of Michigan Avenue, was held at the Liberty Bank on Seneca Street in South Buffalo. The Liberty Bank branch was designed in a Sullivanesque style and was built in 1921, with interior architectural details that were revealed to the public for the first time in decades at the pop up. The building was recently purchased by Schneider Development, with plans for a historic rehabilitation.
Buffalo’s Backyard, held in the yard of The Lyth Cottage, which was a long abandoned historic house built in 1868 by John Lyth, a terra cotta manufacturer in Buffalo. The show took a metaphorical approach to the idea of the hidden, the private, and the seldom seen of Buffalo.
Main Street: Photography Pop Up which took place at the former AM&As department store at 377 Main Street in Buffalo in December 2018. Artists were invited explore what Main Street means; Main Street as a counterpoint to Wall Street, as a showcase for fashion and popular culture or as a place of memory in the holiday season.
Route 62, on Bailey Avenue. Route 62 is a 2,248 mile long highway connecting Niagara Falls, NY, to El Paso, TX, through Buffalo. Established in 1930, it is the only east-west United States Numbered Highway that connects Mexico and Canada. In Buffalo, Route 62 encompasses Bailey Avenue and South Park Avenue.
Big Tent Revival, held at The Church of the Transfiguration on Sycamore Street on Buffalo’s East Side. The Buffalo resurgence narrative has rarely turned its attention toward places like Buffalo’s East Side, which is why Transfiguration Church was chosen for the most recent pop up location. Transfiguration Church may be the most threatened landmark in Buffalo, and one of the great place-defining symbols of the East Side.
The City Beyond the Falls: Pop Up Art Show This in Niagara Falls, NY at former Krausmann’s department store at 1902 Main Street. Artists focused on the city within earshot of the eighth wonder, but too often beyond the sight of the tourists.
