Apr 17, 2009

Washington, D.C. – With AmericanStyle Magazine naming Buffalo the top arts destination among America’s mid-sized cities, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand issued the following statement:

“I would like to congratulate the City of Buffalo for being named the number one Arts Destination by AmericanStyle Magazine. I am glad that the city of such cultural gems as Buffalo has again received this top recognition.

“The City of Buffalo has so much talent and many treasures, that their thriving artistic economy and cultural tourism base are an important part of our economic recovery.

“Home to such destinations as the Artspace Buffalo Artists Residence, the H.H. Richardson Complex, the Burchfield Penney Art Center, and the Albright Knox Art Gallery, the City of Buffalo rightfully deserves this designation.”
