SACRA Society for the Advancement of Construction Related Arts
The Society for the Advancement of Construction Related Arts (SACRA)—a partnership between the Albright-Knox Art Gallery's Innovation Lab and Assembly House 150—uses design arts to address critical needs related to neighborhood stabilization, preservation, and workforce training in Western New York. Building upon the legacy of artistic and design excellence demonstrated by Buffalo’s architectural heritage, SACRA has two main goals:
- Create teaching/learning opportunities where exceptional quality and richness of imagination in design and construction are encouraged.
- Teach the necessary skills for employment in the fields of carpentry and woodworking.
