"Nexus"

“Beautiful Health Fphacze”

The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus installed two two large-scale murals on the MiGo, a parking garage on the corner of Michigan & Goodrich. The  murals (50’ x 20’) were painted by local artists. BNMC Inc. provided the funding for both murals, which each took approximately one week to install. The Tri-Main Center and 11 East Utica art studio in Buffalo gave the artists space to work on the murals, and the Langston Hughes Institute Center, also in Buffalo, provided space to store the works, which were created in panels.

Buffalo area artists William Y. Cooper, a 1975 UB BFA graduate, and James J. Cooper III (no relation) teamed up with Brooklyn artist Jennifer Fuentes to create “Nexus,” the mural on the Goodrich side of the garage. The title is a metaphor for the Buffalo Niagara region’s role in promoting cutting-edge science and medicine.
