"An exterior mural has been fashioned by artist Chris Kameck. The work is of a nearly life-sized Erie Railroad steam locomotive. Dana Saylor, and Ron Dukarm of the WNY Railway Association, both helped to research the mural, which is significant iconography that pertains to the rails and the engines that once led to the building." - The Barrel Factory: A Makers’ Market, pub. on Buffalo Rising,  Aug, 29, 2014
