Come out to celebrate black culture and heritage, and its unique influence on local, national, and international art.

ACG’s “Art for All” weekend will include the Pop-Up Exhibit as well as the opening reception of our next exhibit Creations: Collections and Connections, in conjunction with a free summer party hosted in front of the gallery in DiNapoli Park. Also, join us in the morning before the start of the Black Arts and Cultural Festival for our #CapitalWalls Mural Tour, and hear from the muralists themselves about their inspiration and artistic process.

All of the Art for All events are supported by the Downtown Albany BID, All Over Albany, Park Albany and the Amplify Albany Grant Program, a program made possible by Capitalize Albany and the City of Albany’s Capital Resource Corporation.
