Exhibition Features Children’s Works Inspired by Street Photographer

Elementary and middle school students from South Buffalo’s Seneca Babcock community displayed their “street photography” skills at a Daemen College exhibition that was inspired by the works of American street photographer Vivian Maier.

The photographs shown in the April 21 exhibition, “Seneca Babcock Through the Eyes, Hearts and Art of Children: Part III,” resulted from a community art project overseen by Dr. Mary Wolf, Daemen associate professor of art education, and art education major Samantha Lora of Manchester.
