The winner is . . .

The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority was very proud to announce this year’s winner of our Black History Month art contest: Tyshaun Tyson.

Tyson’s work will grace the side of three buses with the opportunity to be seen by thousands of people and continue to expand the growth of NFTA-Metro’s public art experiences.Tyshaun is well known in the community for his artwork including a Main Street scape in Niagara Falls and the overseeing of the “You Are Not Alone” mural on Bailey Avenue in Buffalo.
