Graycliff Stone Mural Saved From Demolition

Frank Lloyd Wright's mural will become the focus of a cultural tour. (Includes photos.)

"A historic cement mural weighing 18 tons settled gently as a feather onto a concrete pedestal outside Butler Library on the Buffalo State College campus Thursday, three years after it was rescued from the wrecking ball at Frank Lloyd Wright's Graycliff.

...'He would be very happy that his mural was saved from destruction,' she said as the wood-and-steel-encased work was lifted from a flatbed trailer and swung slowly into place by two cranes working in tandem. The artist would have been proud, too, to see the 18-by-12-foot mural find a new home at Buffalo State College."
