Sculpture in the Streets

Sculpture in the Streets on Pearl St

They're happy to share the sidewalk with you.

If you're wandering through downtown Albany (say, on your way to Cone of Our Own) there are 16 new steel sculptures to check out. The Downtown Albany BID just switched out the abstract metal sculpture from last year's "Sculpture in the Streets" installation.

The art is scattered throughout the neighborhood. We found a few of the new pieces outside Capital Rep, in Ten Eyck Plaza and near the footbridge to The Corning Preserve. Fourteen regional artists are featured in the temporary installation, including Steven Rolf Kroeger (the guy who created Albany's 15-foot floating, burning, steel tulip). The downtown BID is holding an official kickoff party and fundraiser tomorrow night, but the art will be up until next April.

Pics of a few more of the sculptures after the jump.
