Artpark and LB Mason Fine Art, LLC
(424 Center Street, Lewiston NY 14092) are thrilled to announce a partnership showcasing the vibrant, unique, and jaw dropping artwork of Philip Burke
, a Buffalo born artist. Burke's work has adorned the pages of major publications, including Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Time, and Rolling Stone Magazine, to name a few.
Burke has agreed to contribute to Artpark by producing several live painting events at select Amphitheater concerts and has designed the 2016 season identity as used in the Artpark Brochure.
