The New York Power Authority is seeking participants to take part in a special exhibit during Black History Month beginning Feb. 2 at the Niagara Power Vista, the admission-free visitors' center at the Niagara Power Project, 5777 Lewiston Road.

The theme of this year's exhibit is "A Century of Black Life, History and Culture." The public is invited to prepare posters, essays or collages centering on the theme. The projects will be displayed at the Power Vista throughout February. Area schools have been invited to participate.

The special exhibit will conclude Feb. 28 with a Black History program featuring performances by the Dance and Drum Performance Company from the African American Cultural Center in Buffalo, area exhibitors and youth-related activities.

Visitors are invited to enjoy the Power Vista's attractions, including displays and interactive exhibits relating to the production of electricity, energy efficiency and the area's history, plus unique views from the observation deck 350 feet above the Niagara River Gorge. Parking and admission at the Power Vista are free.
