"This summer I learned so much more about Buffalo’s recent revitalization efforts. Especially since I live outside the city, there were some projects I was not familiar with that High Road introduced me too. Seeing the role of the arts in combatting issues such as gentrification was really interesting. I also learned more about community engaged learning, something that I had never been familiar with. I really loved how this kind of learning involves a hands on approach that is often not as common in traditional educational institutions."
"Audrey was professional, organized and thorough. Her database project reflected these qualities. Buffalo Arts Studio will utilize her research as we continue to advocate for increased public art and inclusion of diverse communities in creating the installations."
