The arts can build bridges across cultures, generations and geographies. The Niagara Falls Bridge Commission supports the efforts of Lewiston Council on the Arts as sponsor of the Lewiston Art Festival. The annual event draws thousands of visitors to historic Lewiston from across Western New York and Southern Ontario. Now in its 46th year, the 2012 Art Festival is scheduled for Aug. 11 and 12 along Center Street. For more information, call 716-754-0166.
