Kenan Center Unveils Sculptures Funded by Lockport Artist

Kenan Center Unveils Sculptures Funded by Lockport Artist

On Friday, September 28, the Kenan Center unveiled two colorful metal sculptures that contain the creative ideas of twenty-two community children ages 8 to 12 who participated in a special arts experience during the summer with artist educators from Essex Street Arts Center. One of the sculptures, in particular, is dedicated to a Lockport artist named Wendy Gibson whose family wanted to remember her life in a special way.

Gibson was a familiar exhibitor at the Kenan Center’s annual Holiday Gift Show. When Gibson passed away in November of 2011 from cancer, just prior to the November Gift Show in which she was scheduled to exhibit her work, her family took her place at her booth, and offered the proceeds to the Kenan Center to fund an arts program for children.

In addition to the organizations enumerated in the Sunday News yesterday, there was in the line, three sections of railroad employees, aggregating 1500 in number.  With that addition, the total number of men in line was in the neighborhood of 20,000 and fine, stalwart, intelligent men most of them were--men who compose the bone and sinew of the city's great industrial army--men of whom Buffalo is deservedly proud.

New Yorkers Deserve Good Insurance Options

New Yorkers Deserve Good Insurance Options

Three years ago, a New York public school custodian, returning from his coffee break, was hit by an underinsured driver while crossing the street and left permanently disabled. He was in a training program and on his way to becoming a chief custodian but instead was left disabled, requiring significant physical therapy to even walk again.  While he thought the insurance he purchased would provide some financial relief for the fact he could no longer perform his job, he was left high and dry.
