tation artwork

In 1979, an art selection committee was created, comprised of NFTA commissioners and Buffalo area art experts, that would judge the artwork that would be displayed in and on the properties of eight stations on the Metro Rail line.

Out of the seventy proposals submitted, twenty-two were chosen and are currently positioned inside and outside of the eight underground stations.Buffalo Art in Transit, Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority, c. 1986.]

Summer-Best Station is home of two pieces of work, from George Sugarman (New York City) and John Pfahl (Buffalo).
