Buffalo Rising, March 5, 2010

There's something new and wonderful at this year's Home and Garden Show that should make architecture buffs smile.

Brian Nesline, best known for his Faces of Buffalo series, depicting scenes made from mosaics of faces, has created the series of black and white "letter" photographs as part of his Buffalo Photo Alphabet Project.  "Letters for Literacy" is a partnership between Nesline and Read to Succeed Buffalo to raise funds to support efforts to improve literacy throughout Buffalo.

A portion of all profits will go to Read to Succeed.

Nesline will be present on the lower level of the Convention Center (booth # 320) on March 5th - 7th, and 12th - 14th, from 10AM to 9PM on Fridays and Saturdays, and 10AM - 6PM on Sundays.  He will spell out anything you like, and there are pre-made note cards and T-shirts for purchase as well.

Go to the Faces of Buffalo site in order to spell out anything you like.  The "Create Your Word" generator will spell anything you like, right on the spot.  We know because we tried it!  Do you think Nesline can collect photos of the Statler that will spell out "Save Me"? 

This really is too much fun.
