BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Next to Hertel Avenue from Traymore Street to Colvin Avenue, Hertel Alley exploded with color over the weekend. Local artists painted the Hertel Alley with what ever creations they could think of.
"An outdoor gallery it is a walking space most people didn't even know it was here," Vincent Alejandro, one of the organizers for the Hertel Art Festival said. "It's a route people can bring their bikes through, they can walk through, and job through."
Councilman Joel Feroleto says this project is an effort to bring more foot traffic to Hertel Avenue businesses with the attraction of the murals. Walking up and down the alley, it's a great place to take some photos and enjoy the artwork.
"Hertel alone is one of the many epicenters for art and culture in Buffalo," Mark Madden, one of the artists said.
It's a great spot to take some pictures and enjoy the artwork for three blocks.
"I think they should fill every inch and it could be really cool gallery space to see and for people to enjoy," Nicholas Miller, another artist said.
