Outdoor Photo Exhibit Brings Awareness to Veterans Facing PTSD

A photo exhibit at the Central Library in Buffalo, NY is spreading awareness of the struggles that some veterans face with PTSD, and it’s thanks in part to a local print shop.

Buffalo Canvas, owned by Mark Russell, printed and installed the collection of photos that were curated by photojournalist Brendan Bannon. Called the Odyssey Project, the exhibit features photographs from 42 veterans.

The outdoor exhibit presented various challenges, including temperatures that would vary between 40 to 65 degrees. Russell needed a product with the right adhesive, was easily removable and met fire safety standards with a Class A fire rating.

At the recommendation of distributor LexJet (Sarasota, FL), he chose General Formulations’ 226HTR WallMark, which offers a pressure-sensitive adhesive that was developed to be high-tack and removable (HTR).

The exhibit was installed on a large exterior granite wall of the library. Weather conditions, including occasional snow, put the product to the test.

“… The GF 226 HTR performed really well, giving us flexibility with the install and being easily removable,” Russell said. “[The photos] printed beautifully, and the installation went smoothly. The library loved it and has extended the exhibit through May.”

The exhibit runs through May 31 at the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library at 1 Lafayette Square in Buffalo. It’s free and open to the public.
