Station artwork[edit]

In 1979, an art selection committee was created, composed of NFTA commissioners and Buffalo area art experts, that would judge the artwork that would be displayed in and on the properties of eight stations on the Metro Rail line.

Out of the seventy proposals submitted, twenty-two were chosen and are currently positioned inside and outside of the eight underground stations.[3]

Summer-Best Station is home of two pieces of work, from George Sugarman (New York City) and John Pfahl (Buffalo).
