Several different artists have been gathered together to create a public art project known as Art Alley. Art Alley is located in an alleyway off of Third Street in Niagara Falls.

As a lover of public artwork, I had to visit the site and look at the progress.  And when I say "visit the site," I actually mean that I maybe possibly squeezed through a fence just so I could snap some photos.  It looks absolutely amazing so far!

When the space is finished, it is planned to be a hub for different events and activities. I couldn't think of a better use for a space than this.

If you are in the area, I highly recommend driving by and checking it out!  But I don't  highly recommend squeezing through the fence...that might be a bit frowned upon.
