Janelle Lynch: Day 5 / Entry #2: BPAC Artist-in-Residence Visit #1 April 14, 2013

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Throughout her year as Burchfield artist-in-residence, Janelle Lynch will share her thoughts and impressions with us as we share her journey into the spirit and work of Charles Burchfield.


The Charles E. Burchfield's Buffalo City Sites tour, designed and led by curator Nancy Weekly paused for brunch at the magnificent Hotel Lafayette on 391 Washington Street. The seven-story, French renaissance style red brick and white terra cotta building was designed by Louise Bethune (1856-1913), the first woman to be recognized by the American Institute of Architects. After recent renovations, which honored the buildings original design, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Thank you Nancy Weekly, and Mary Kozub, the BPAC's Museum Educator and Tour Manager.

Stay tuned about an upcoming tour to Ohio, CEB's birthplace!
