Hosted Event  |  Barging into the Burch: Think-You've-Seen-It-All Front Yard Thursday

Buffalo Infringement Festival at the Burchfield Penney

Thursday, July 31, 2014, 5:30–10 pm

Something is happening in front of the Burchfield Penney. Creatures of culture freely roam, leaving a trail of creation in their wake; a lone percussionist summons a post-modern spectacle; time stops as a master of minutiae coaxes compelling drama from dolls and string; music and motion soar interwoven in flights of fancy; songs of the sunset beckon a building emblazoned with color and light; a multi-sensory culmination of imagination projects onto waves of the future, channeling the buoyancy of the artistic spirit.
