The big picture in Troy

Just a few more touches...

We were walking through downtown Troy today and stopped for a few minutes to watch artist Kevin Clark put a few last touches on the new mural on the side of 50 Second Street (adjacent to the bank parking lot).

The work depicts the inside of the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. The project apparently sparked some discussion about how public art projects should be reviewed in Troy. [Troy Record]

It was interesting to watch Clark this afternoon as he applied a few highlights to the huge painting. He'd move around on the motorized lift and apply a few brush strokes here and there.

You've probably seen his work before. He's painted a bunch of murals around the Capital Region -- including the one on the side of Brown's Brewing.

The Arts Center of the Capital Region is holding an "unveiling" of the mural August 31 at 5 pm (we hear there will also be confetti and gelato -- hard to go wrong there).

A bunch of other pics after the jump. Including a (stitched together) big pic of the mural.

Nice! Pittsburgh has quite a few of these. Troy would do well to make the same progress Pitt has made in recent years in restoring / revitalizing.

Can Albany please take a cue from Troy and get some creative ideas for our downtown?

The mural looks great. And I agree with ph...I remember when there were some pretty nice murals around downtown Albany. There was one on Lark Street at the corner with Washington Avenue, one on the corner of Lark and Madison...

Have you seen these projects in Troy?- They are called the Alley Action Projects:
