AK Public Art Spotlight: Logan Hicks's Walking Back Time

August 5, 2019

Logan Hicks's Walking Back Time, 2019, on the Washington Street façade of 5 East Huron Street in Buffalo.

It's shaping up to be another busy summer for AK Public Art! Here on the blog, we're taking a look back at how this year's class of murals, sculptures, and other projects grew and developed over time.

Logan Hicks's Walking Back Time captures a nighttime view down Court Street toward Niagara Square and City Hall, one of Buffalo's signature sight lines. The mural is based on photographs the artist took downtown late at night, a relatively quiet, peaceful time that allows him to “slow down and look at [the environment] with fresh eyes . . . [and] start to see the beauty in the mundane.”
