Travis Scott
Mar 1 @ 6:10 pm – 6:10 pm

Travis Scott has announced a second leg of his “ASTROWORLD: WISH YOU WERE HERE” tour. It will make a stop at KeyBank Center on Thursday, February 28 at 7:30pm.

Set to be some of his most explosive performances yet, the second leg of the tour follows an initial leg that included dates at historic venues like New York City’s Madison Square Garden and Los Angeles’ The Forum, with a special homecoming ASTROWORLD Festival in Houston that took place on November 17th.

The Houston rapper’s live shows have become the stuff of a legend with Billboard writing “Travis Scott’s penchant for raging, off-the-wall live shows have become an essential part of his career.” Speaking about the early shows of the first leg of the “ASTROWORLD: WISH YOU WERE HERE” tour, Complex says, “this show is worth whatever effort you have to put forth to catch it.”

Tickets go on sale Thursday, December 20 at 10:00am. Tickets are $129.95, $99.95, $79.95, $59.95 and $39.95 (includes $4.50 facility fee) and can be purchased at the KeyBank Center Box Office, online at www.tickets.com, or by calling 888-223-6000. A random handbill policy will be in effect. A limited number of handbills are available now. All tickets subject to applicable service charges and fees.

Call for Artists: Public Art on Oliver Street
Mar 1 @ 6:10 pm – 6:10 pm

Art On Oliver Street- A Public Art Initiative

Deadline for Submissions: Friday, March 1, 2019 at 5PM

Lumber City Development Corporation was awarded funding through the OATH Community Benefit Fund to fund public art on Oliver Street. This initiative known as “Art on Oliver Street” will officially launch in Spring 2019.

This is a 3-part project that will include:

1. Installing approximately 24 reproductions of artwork in the windows of vacant and underutilized storefronts on Oliver St. between Thompson & Wheatfield Streets.

2. The creation of a 3D installation display in a storefront on the corner of Oliver & Thompson Streets.

3. The creation of a mural by Chuck Tingley at the DHU Strand Theatre located at 540 Oliver Street.

**We are seeking artists who wish to participate in this program.
Please refer to the Call for Artists submission forms via the link below for more information.

All entries are due on March 1st 2019 at 5 PM, and the selection process will begin mid-March 2019. All submissions must be submitted via email (see the calls for work below for more info).

Through this project, we hope to create a “walking art gallery” on Oliver Street which will not only immerse pedestrians in the local arts community, but will bring attention to buildings, promote walk-ability, and beautify this key corridor in North Tonawanda.
