As Chair of the 2017 Taste of Buffalo presented by TOPS, I am excited to offer this opportunity to recognize another emerging Western New York artist. On behalf of the 2017 Board of Directors, I encourage all aspiring student artists to put their creative skills to the test. The winning artwork will be become the Official 2017 festival poster and will also be incorporated into some of the other Taste of Buffalo marketing materials. Your work will be showcased across the WNY region and at the festival. So start creating and good luck!
Chairman, 2017 Taste of Buffalo presented by TOPS
The successful Grand Prize Winner will have their artwork used in some of the 2017 Taste of Buffalo presented by TOPS official advertising materials! This is a great opportunity for students to develop a strong understanding of the bond of art within the community and how it can affect the outcome of an event. This project can be used as both a teaching tool and an opportunity for students to further develop their portfolios as they prepare for a curriculum in art and/or design.
