Dennis Maher and Joyce Hwang, faculty members at the University at Buffalo's School of Architecture and Planning, have each received $7,000 grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts. Maher's work, on view in his Fargo House as well as a current Hallwalls exhibition, uses the detritus of demolished homes and other collected items to create elaborate sculptures and architectural environments. Hwang has been working on her ongoing "Habitat Wall" project, described in a UB release as "a sculptural habitat for birds and bats that addresses the condition of habitat loss in cities."
