BUFFALO, NY — COMAND Solutions principal Mitch Bechtel now sits on the Board of Directors for Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, a Buffalo-based non-profit arts organization. The mission of Hallwalls is:
A. To provide a center for contemporary art.
B. To recognize and serve a vital community artistic presence which is global in its outlook, challenging in its ideas, pluralistic in its concerns, and diverse in its expression. Hallwalls' twofold mission is to serve artists by supporting the creation and presentation of new work in the visual, media, performing, and literary arts, and to serve the public by making these works available to audiences. Hallwalls is dedicated in particular to work by artists which challenges and extends the traditional boundaries of the various art forms, and which is critically engaged with current issues in the arts and—through the arts—in society. Finally, Hallwalls believes that the right of freedom of expression for artists, and for free access to their works by interested individuals, must be protected as a fundamental and necessary condition of their mission.
