Director of the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery Catherine Tedford has been invited to serve on a federal arts panel for the Art in Architecture Program of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). The project is a new $2.6 million federal border station in Massena, NY, designed by Smith-Miller and Hawkinson Architects in Manhattan.

According to the GSA, the Art in Architecture Program "commissions publicly scaled artworks that are integral parts of the architectural fabric or surrounding landscapes of new federal buildings. This program enables GSA to provide the American public with government office buildings and courthouses that are not only pleasing and functional, but that also enrich the cultural, social, and commercial resources of the communities where they are located."

Smith-Miller and Hawkinson Architects is a New York City-based architecture and urban planning firm founded in 1983. The firm has conceived public and private projects across the United States, ranging from residential commissions and parks to corporate buildings, public transportation terminals, theatres and museums. Major projects include a $62 million expansion of the Corning Glass Center, which opened in 1999, and the US Land Ports of Entry at Champlain and Massena for the General Services Administration.
