Bringing Amazing Art to Buffalo from 2015-2021

For 6 years, the Creative Arts Initiative (CAI) received many excellent proposals for artist residencies from a wide variety of disciplines, from across the country and around the world and were able to bring some amazing artists to Buffalo to create new art while engaging with our students and the Buffalo community. We are very sorry to see this important effort come to an end.

We invite you to peruse this site and hope that you will enjoy and be inspired by the art whose creation we have been privileged to support.

Farewell. Keep creating!
