Buffalo’s snowy winters provide a unique artistic medium. On the shore of Lake
Erie, above Niagara Falls, it would be hard to find a more
beautiful place to stoke your creative fires. Discover why Buffalo
is called the “City of Good Neighbors”.
Buffalo has long inspired great artists like F. Scott Fitzgerald
and Mark Twain, both of whom called Buffalo home. Our literary
legacy continues to thrive, through one of the nation’s top
literary presenters, the Just Buffalo Literary Center:
Buffalo’s arts community has deep roots, wide impact, and
a unique regional sense of identity. The Creative Arts Initiative shares leadership and
encourages partnership and collaboration with Buffalo’s
leading artistic and cultural institutions.
CAI is very pleased to have received many excellent proposals
for artist residencies for the next academic year. We received
proposals from artists from a wide variety of disciplines, from
across the country and around the world. These proposals are
currently under review. We will be annoucing our
Artists-in-Residence for next year in early 2018.
