BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo is about to premier an outdoor installation that museum officials say will be curated by the weather.
Called the "Front Yard," it involves projecting electronic images and sound onto the 38-foot curved facade of the gallery. The image and audio will be determined through a software program which takes cues from the temperature, precipitation, barometer, light levels and other weather measures.
The Front Yard will turn on at sunset on Friday with a new work by Brian Milbrand, a Buffalo State College faculty artist who is the installation's co-creator.
Elmwood Avenue will close at 5 p.m. between Rockwell Road and Penhurst Parkway and remain closed until 10 p.m. for the event, which will also feature live music, art activities, open galleries and food trucks.
