Skywriting in Buffalo
Saturday 19th Aug, 2017
Join us on August 19th to view and document "There Here" an amazing new project by the artist Kim Beck. In There Here, a skywriter will draw arrows in the sky pointing to the US/Canadian border located over the Niagara River in Buffalo, New York. Commissioned as part of the exhibition Wanderlust: Actions, Traces, Journeys 1967-2017, the arrows will be photographed and then appear on several billboards dotted throughout the city, fixing the directional language onto signs.
Participate! Viewers of the skywriting can take photographs of the arrows and upload them to social media with the tag #ubskywriting and #ubwanderlust. Please send high resolution images to the artist at firstname.lastname@example.org. She may choose one of these images to use on a billboard! To see the arrows and participate, viewers can situate themselves between Canalside and the Peace Bridge or most anywhere else in the greater Buffalo area.
Please note: we are so excited to have a wide range of participants. Should you decide to take part and send a photograph to Kim, the copyright of the event and the photograph will become hers to use in this or another context.
A series of photographs will also be on view in the exhibition at the UB Anderson Gallery. Wanderlust: Actions, Traces, Journeys 1967-2017 is on view September 7th through December 31, 2017.
