#CapitalWalls Mural Tour

Tags: Gallery News

As part of ACG’s Art for All weekend, we welcome you to join us for a walking tour of our #CapitalWalls public murals on Saturday, August 4. The guided tour, led by mural curator Tony Iadicicco, will stop at several public artworks around Albany. Mural artists Rachel Baxter, Michael Conlin, Cara Hanley and Sylvie Kantorovitz will join us on the tour, with each having a chance to talk about the inspiration for their mural as well as their artistic process. The tour will also make stops at several businesses in downtown Albany (locations to be announced).

Tickets for the mural tour are $25; this ticket price includes a registered spot on the tour itself as well as beverage vouchers and light refreshments from local restaurants (to be announced). The ticket price also helps us pay the mural artists for their time and will contribute to funding more public art programs in the Capital Region. Spots on the tour are limited; tickets are required to join us on the tour. Purchase yours today!

Capital Walls is a public art endeavor by Albany Center Gallery in partnership with Albany Barn, ParkAlbany, and Downtown Albany, New York that seeks to inspire our community with uplifting, educational, or thought-provoking works of art for the public. The mural tour is made possible with support from Capitalize Albany Corporation. Visit our #CapitalWalls page here for details and images of each of the public art projects we will stop to see on the tour.

ACG’s Art for All weekend will include the mural tour as well as the opening reception of our next exhibit Creations: Connections & Collections in conjunction with a free summer party hosted in front of the gallery in DiNapoli Park on Friday, August 3rd. After the mural tour, visit ACG’s Pop-Up Exhibit at the NYS Black Arts & Cultural Festival, featuring local artwork inspired by black heritage and culture. All of the Art for All events are sponsored by Downtown Albany BID and All Over Albany.
