Grant Street Global Voices:
In partnership with Young Audiences of WNY and Buffalo Public Schools, the CAC is coordinating a large scale public arts project: Grant Street Global Voices. Muralist Augustina Droze designed and painted the four story mural that incorporated images and narratives from youth and community members. Community and school-based workshops began in fall of 2012 that culminated in the mural being painted during the spring and summer of 2013. To date the project has engaged over 40 Buffalo State students and 240 youth on the West Side.
