Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts

The Elmwood Avenue Festival of the Arts mission is to foster growth in, and awareness of, Western New York’s artistic and cultural treasures and improve the fabric of our unique urban environment. Each year the festival chooses a theme, which informs the festival’s overall brand design as well as many of the performances and exhibits. “The Phoenix” was chosen for the 2015 theme in recognition of the many efforts within the community towards the rebirth of Buffalo and the creative and cultural spirit that helps sustain it. Friend and creative colleague, Pete Reiling, helped us realize our vision for the Phoenix.
