Artpark Executive Director Sonia Clark said, "M&T Bank has such a rich history of investing in the arts in WNY, standing behind Artpark's growth of diverse programming, including many musical productions and Buffalo Philharmonic concerts, and most recently international tours by Bale de Rua's 'Baila Brazil' and Plasticiens Volants' 'Big Bang.' We could not be more thrilled to recognize M&T Bank as the now presenting sponsor of our most coveted concert series, 'Tuesdays in the Park.' "
