The bland brown loading dock of HarborCenter that greets visitors shuffling along Scott Street between (716) Food and Sport and Tim Hortons will soon receive an injection of color as part of a public art project planned for the building.
The mural, following a model established locally by a recent public art project at 95 Perry St., will be chosen via a public vote on the HarborCenter website [VOTE HERE]. The options range from bold graphics of nearby grain elevators to pastel sketches of historic streetscapes.
The voting continues through Feb. 17, with the winning design to be announced the following day. The winning contestant will receive $1,500 and a "One Buffalo prize pack," according to a release from HarborCenter.
Here's a look at the submissions, whose creators were not immediately identified:
