Capital Walls is a public art endeavor by Albany Center Gallery in partnership with Albany Barn, ParkAlbany, and Downtown Albany BID that seeks to inspire our community with uplifting, educational, or thought-provoking works of art for the public.

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.
