HISTORICAL WALL MURAL
Environmental graphics draw attention to a community service agency’s historic location
Our team had the opportunity to create a large mural for the Buffalo Federation of Neighborhood Center’s newly renovated space within the historic Westminster Community House.
The design uses the hallway’s 3 adjacent walls to establish a storytelling triptych, with the large center panel featuring a timeline of important events in the BFNC’s history that informs visitors about how the modern organization came to be. Enlarged vintage photographs from different decades show the evolution of the BFNC over time, paired with square and triangular block patterns to evoke the ‘cultural quilt’ that is the Buffalo community.
The new wall mural not only adds visual interest to the space, but serves to introduce passersby to the history of the building and the BFNC’s community-based values.
