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.]

Delavan-Canisius College Station is home of three pieces of work, from Sam Gilliam (Washington, DC), Carson Waterman (Seneca-Iroquois National Museum), and George Woodman (New York City and Boulder, CO).
