BUFFALO SABRES 40TH ANNIVERSARY EXHIBIT
Temporary exhibition commemorates the Buffalo Sabres first 40 years in the NHL through hockey memorabilia and artifacts.
To commemorate the Buffalo Sabres first 40 years in the NHL, the team wanted to share historic artifacts and famous hockey moments with the their fans – the plan was to use two glass cases on the second-floor mezzanine of the HSBC Arena for the exhibit, which would be on display throughout the 2010-2011 season.
OW|EN began the project by researching memorable events from the team’s history and reviewing artifacts owned by local hockey memorabilia collector Joseph E. Gambacorta, DDS, founder of the Buffalo Hockey Experience + Museum. We outlined the Sabres’ story and some of their outstanding highlights, starting with their inception in 1970 through to the 2008 Winter Classic. To commemorate each historic moment, we selected archival photos and unique pieces of hockey memorabilia from Dr. Gambacorta’s permanent collection.
