Know thy neighbor…

Check out this article in The New York Times “Home and Garden” section featuring UB professor of architecture/artist Dennis Mahar, this year’s artist in residence at the Albright-Knox. The accompanying slide show is incredible, as it shines a light on the artist’s house on the city’s West Side. The general public will, of course, get a chance to see the artist’s work at the gallery, but a glimpse into the house of the artist, who has long-foraged for discarded architectural elements of the city’s past, is something else entirely. 
From The Times:
Mr. Maher’s show at the Albright-Knox Gallery is a collaboration between him and eight local building tradespeople, whom he invited to make pieces inspired by his house using the materials of their trade. Jamillah Green, a plumber, made a delicate Jungian house from copper pipes with a tree growing inside it. Using a single door, Dan Farrell, a window and door installer, made a model that’s part house, part guitar.
