A special Valentine from the Richardson
Wednesday, February 14, 2018
We love you, Buffalo!
Back in July, we welcomed the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, Projex, and 15,000 friends to the South Lawn of the Richardson Olmsted Campus to celebrate the successful rehabilitation of three buildings on-site.
enLIGHTen was an unforgettable night – and now we’re ready to share the love with a beautiful video series spotlighting selected portions of the program. Episode 1 is live today as our love letter to Buffalo, with Episodes 2 and 3 coming soon.
Please enjoy this special valentine from us, the BPO, and Projex to you! Thank you so much for your support. Happy Valentine’s Day!
This Place Matters
We love our National Historic Landmark and we’re not afraid to show it! Every February, Buffalo’s Young Preservationists shower vacant and underutilized buildings with valentines (“heart bombs”) to show appreciation for Buffalo’s historic architecture.
The Richardson has come a long way thanks to the love and support of its community – and there’s still a lot more to do. Even with the successful rehabilitation of the three center buildings, 10 buildings (that’s 350,000 square feet!) remain that still need our love and attention.
So, next time you’re at the Richardson, join the #heartbomb tradition and show your love for our treasured buildings. Tag us @richardonctr and we might share your photo! Let’s show the world that #ThisPlaceMatters!
