NOTE: Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to heed the advice of public health professionals, and suspend all tours and events.
We will be re-evaluating and making decisions as more information is released. We look forward to your support in the future and celebrating our beautiful community soon!
On April 21st, join Preservation Buffalo Niagara for the official unveiling of the new version of Buffalo City Hall: Americanesque Masterpiece at the 9th Ward at Babeville at 5:30pm.
Buffalo City Hall: Americanesque Masterpiece was first produced in 1993 by the Landmark Society of the Niagara Frontier (which subsequently became Preservation Buffalo Niagara), originally authored by John Conlin and including original photography by Biff Heinrich to coincide with an exhibition at the Burchfield Penny Art Center entitled “Buffalo’s City Hall: The Politics of Architecture and Design.”
This new version has been updated and edited by Preservation Buffalo Niagara staff to include new information and additional citations, along with additional historic images, and new original photography. Design services were provided by White Bicycle. A special debt of gratitude belongs to Jodi Lynn Maracle for her assistance in properly identifying and describing the Native American imagery and symbolism of the building.
Finally, this new publication would not have been possible without the financial support of the Charles D. and Mary A. Bauer Foundation.
Attendees will receive a copy of the book, light snacks, and a drink ticket. Tickets are $40 for PBN members and $50 non-members. Space is limited and tickets must be purchased by April 18th.
