About the Juror(s):
What began as a hobby of art collecting soon became a passion that led founder, Dr. Francisco J. Hernandez-Ilizaliturri (better known as Paco), to establish Buffalo Art Movement. Throughout his years of collecting, Paco has been able to curate a vast collection of works that highlight and celebrate the talents of WNY artists. Additionally, his passion for cultivating the arts in our community has led to an invitation of serving at the Burchfield Penney Art Center as a member of the board of trustees. When he is not at BAM! Paco can be found at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, as the Chief of the Lymphoma Section and Professor of Oncology. In creating BAM! Paco aspires to continue his work of supporting local artists by inviting them into a space where they can share their vision with our community.
