Art Across Borders is a project of the Women in the Arts focus group, a sub-committee of the Women's Pavilion Pan-American 2001.

Project Overview
In celebration of the Pan-American Exposition Centennial, the Women in the Arts Focus Group of the Women’s Pavilion Pan-American 2001 is presenting a public art project which, international in scope, will install public works of art exploring the theme "Pan-American Women: Past, Present, and Future." Artists who live or work in the bi-national, Erie-Niagara region are producing works that document, imagine, and interpret the roles, history, and achievements of women in North, Central, and South America.

The Pan-Am Public Art Project: Art Across Borders will enrich both the cultural and civic life of WNY by bringing art to accessible, public, community sites throughout the City of Buffalo. A brochure with a map, and a documentary video will be created to identify the "cultural arts trail" that will draw visitors and tourists from throughout NY and the world. Art Across Borders will leave an important, long-term, visual, historical, and educational legacy of the Pan-American Centennial for the citizens of our region.
