BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The largest mural in Buffalo, located at 1665 Main Street, is set to finish on Friday.

The project, which is part of the Albright Knox Public Art Initiative, stands at 120-feet tall and features a series of arrows done in 27 different colors. 80 gallons of paint were used for the mural which was done by artist Tavar Zawacki. Albright Knox hopes this becomes an artist beacon for the city.

"Art and culture are the glue that holds the community together," Abright Knox artists director Janne Siren said, "they beautify our county and our city. They make this a liveable place for the people of Buffalo and Erie County."

The mural will be officially completed on Friday, September 27th.
