From the "Symposium & Art in the Buffalo Area: 1920-1930" program:
"This exhibition, Art in the Buffalo Area: 1920-1930, represents selected segments of life and art in the Buffalo area during a specific decade in American history. The Buffalo area, often referred to by such names as the Niagara Frontier, Western New York and the region of Buffalo, actually has no special boundaries. Even cursory observation reveals that as residents move in and out, the invisible boundaries stretch in different directions. The seven persons included in the exhibition are chosen for their contributions in extending American Life and Art through personal contacts with the people and places of this geographic area."
