BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The arts are taking over the Elmwood Village this weekend. Friday, organizers of the Art Blitz announced details about this weekend's event.
Beginning Saturday, 13 artists will invade the neighborhood to put their own personal touches on area signal boxes. These selected artists range in style from still life to urban art.
Alex Cornwell of Community Canvas said, "These boxes are typically the site of graffiti and vandalism, so it's great to see the radiant effect it will on the neighborhood."
There are pictures from the Tonawanda Street Art Blitz, back in August, here on WIVB.com. The public art project brings together artists who decorate different pieces of infrastructure, like traffic signal boxes, garbage cans and even light poles.
Though the artists will begin their projects this weekend, they have a week to complete their masterpieces.
