"On The Front Lines" Virtual Art Exhibition

curated by:

In recent months, a new term has entered every American household: “essential worker.”

These are the brave people we are counting on right now to see us through a global pandemic. They are front-line workers in all industries keeping our world running and our bellies full.

Despite their important work, here in Western New York, 13 percent of our people continue to be food insecure, meaning they don’t have adequate access to nutritious food. This includes 20 percent of our area’s children. With the coronavirus pandemic eliminating so many jobs, that number is expected to grow exponentially in the months to come. Many of these families are relying on food banks for their next meals. With the increased demand, food banks across the region fear they may not be able to meet every need.

Here at Buffalo's Own, Inc., we wanted to be a part of the solution to this massive problem.

Buffalo's Own is a nonprofit organization that provides emerging artists with opportunities to grow creatively and expand into larger art markets. We put our creative minds together to come up with a unique way to support hungry people in our area: We are organizing a fundraiser to feed families who are dealing with food insecurity during this time while highlighting the stories of our essential workers, who are risking their lives in the line of duty.

To share the stories of essential workers, we are curating a unique virtual art exhibit that we hope will raise enough money to feed 100 local families. The exhibit, titled “On the Front Lines,” will illuminate the experiences of 15 essential workers from various industries.

We will also make available a total of 50 limited edition, signed 24x36 prints from the exhibit artwork, with proceeds from the sale to benefit hungry families in Western New York.

We are looking for individuals and businesses to partner with us to bring this exhibit to life and feed our hungry neighbors. We are seeking donations of all sizes to help us purchase the food to create food boxes for each family as well and cover operational expenses related to the campaign. Buffalo’s Own is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so all donations are tax-deductible* and will be used exclusively to advance our mission.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible financial gift to Buffalo’s Own, you can do so securely online with a credit card at LINK .

Thank you in advance for joining us to feed hungry families in Western New York while honoring our essential workers through the power of art!

Sincerely,

Jalen A. Law, Founder and CEO
