Victor, NY— The Seneca Art & Culture Center was honored earlier this month in Albany by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) New York State with a 2016 Excelsior Award for Public Architecture.

AIA New York State, in partnership with the New York State contracting agencies, created the Excelsior Awards to provide a model of excellence for future state-funded building design, professional practice, and advocacy.  The projects are a reflection of the collaborative efficacy of the design and construction team. The Seneca Art & Culture Center—which opened in October 2015—received an award in the New Construction design category.
