Tops has extended the deadline for submissions for artwork for its 5/14 Tops honor space to 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14. The area where this artwork will be displayed will be created outside on the grounds of the Tops store located at 1275 Jefferson Ave., Buffalo, on the corner of Jefferson and Landon.

The public artwork proposal selected for this project will be:

√ Custom created by a local, Western New York artist;

√ Located outdoors and be permanent in nature;

√ Spiritually, culturally and space appropriate; and

√ Easily maintained.
