LearnAboutBuffalo will be pitching its tent in strategic historic spots during the summer of 2021. This is to replace its programming aboard the Open-Air Autobus, which won't be available for tours this year due to COVID-19. LearnAboutBuffalo is the education and research program of The Campaign for Greater Buffalo History, Architecture & Culture.
This is a revival of a revival. The Campaign sponsored the lively and informative Architectural Revival Buffalo series in a giant tent on Bidwell Parkway in the early 2000's. Noted speakers included urban designer and author Jan Gehl, developer Dan Camp of the Cotton District in Starkville, MS., and author of the classic Democratic Architecture, Donald McDonald. The inspiration was the revival tents that spring up on the East Side during the summer.
