Check out the flyer above for what should be one of the dopest exhibits to hit Buffalo in years. The good people at Hero, located on 93 Allen St. in Buffalo are preparing to host a show unlike any other in the art community. Buffalo has been recognized Nationally for years as a “hotspot” for arts and culture, and this year Hero will take it to the next level by hosting the first Custom Vinyl Toys exhibition called “This B.U.D.’s for you!”
Roughly 30 artists or more, some reaching as far away as the UK (Doktor A: his piece shown in the picture above) were provided with a blank white toy called a BUD, about 9 inches tall, for which the artists were to express their artistic fantasies upon, creating rare, one-of-a-kind pieces or art. No rules applied, outside of doing what you do best as an artist. I had a sneak peek at some of the submissions, and just from the brief glance at only maybe a half-dozen BUDS, I can tell you that this show is not to be missed.
