"Illuminated" by Cara Hanley


Cara Hanley’s “Illuminated” from October 2017, located in the Green-Hudson parking garage, is a dream-like depiction of a river and the Albany skyline rising up from an open book. The cityscape floats in a framed starry night sky. Hanley said her inspiration came from the city’s inhabitants and their remarkable spirit. A mental health counselor by day, Hanley’s work encourages moments of quiet and introspection, and “Illuminated” is no exception.
