Press Pass: Painting a new look in a forgotten neighborhood

NORMEL Paintball hosted Paint vs Paint, an event that combined the passion of paintball competitors and the skills of street artists.

It could be called Buffalo's most colorful new event. Paint vs Paint featured paintball competitors battling at a former industrial complex on Howard Street that has been transformed into NORMEL Paintball. The event also attracted street artists who painted their creations on the walls throughout the complex. On WBFO's Press Pass, Newell Nussbaumer of Buffalo Rising explains how the event's energy has also splattered into the nearby neighborhood.
