"You Are Here, Too" by Rachel Baxter


“You Are Here, Too” by Rachel Baxter, completed in Spring 2016, decorates the plywood exterior of 27 N. Pearl Street while the building is under construction. The piece features a mountain-scape, faces, and abstract geometric components. Baxter’s inspiration came from hiking and camping and the connection she formed with nature during that time. The mural’s aim was to inspire people to connect with their surroundings, too--not only the outdoors but the cities they work in, pass through, or inhabit.

"The River That Flows in Two Directions" by Rachel Baxter


“The River That Flows in Two Directions” by Rachel Baxter, completed in October 2017, is located on the I-787 retaining wall between Columbia and Water Streets. The mural shows an abstract mountain top landscape inspired by the Adirondacks evolving into a map of the Hudson River. Baxter’s inspiration came from thinking about the historical significance of the Hudson River, and how it continues to unite the state’s regions.
