Personally, I enjoy the quips and infographics that typically show up on the back pages of magazines, and I really enjoyed, "Creating a Legacy with Painting for Preservation." Some of the story is reproduced below, but we encourage you to purchase the Winter 2012 volume of WNY Heritage and/or subscribe for the whole year!
"With artists, you have an untapped group of people who really are preservationists...they want to see their communities thrive and they're invested in the arts." - Sara M. Zak
"Even as a preservationist, I'm on the clock...I don't often go, sit and look at a building for five hours. It's a whole different level of understanding." - Meagan BacoThank you to Matthew Biddle for the thoughtful interviews and great resulting story, and thanks Steve Siegel for donating a photograph for publication. One of Sara's paintings of Saint Adalbert Basilica and it's neighborhood was published, too.
