Big Orbit Gallery is an artist-run arts center dedicated to transcultural, multidisciplinary explorations of contemporary art issues, with its primary focus being the promotion of the art and artists of western New York. Through programming that ranges from painting to performance art, architectural installations to live sound sculpture, Big Orbit extends the legacy of artistic innovation historically associated with Buffalo, thereby providing a basis for the creation of new boundary pushing work. The gallery encourages under-represented, emerging, and established artists in the community, through solo exhibition opportunities and curated group exhibits promoting social awareness. By embracing many artistic disciplines, including visual arts, performance arts, and media arts, Big Orbit assists in establishing a creative dialogue between artists and the community while raising awareness of the arts developing in western New York.
