Nice to take a moment to sit. A shark girl can get mighty lonely.

Sit with Shark Girl

Described by its sculptor, Casey Riordan Millard, as a mix of Alice (from Alice in Wonderland) and a Great White Shark. Unveiled by the mayor of Buffalo on August 26, 2014, and praised as an example of "new thinking" by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, which co-sponsored its creation. Shark-headed Shark Girl sits on a rock with a space next to her for visitors. Snapshots are encouraged.
