We stopped by this week to check out the restored mural on the side of the building at Madison Ave and Main Ave in Albany. The 35-year-old mural is a bit of landmark in the Pine Hills neighborhood -- but it had been looking a little worse for wear (Akum has the backstory). It was restored a few weeks back by a group that included Constance Dwyer Heiden, the original artist, and was coordinated by the Beautify Upper Madison Project.
A stitched-together (crude, distorted) panorama of the mural is after the jump.
By the way: The Beautify Upper Madison Project is having a fundraiser at the Madison Theater August 3 -- a midnight screening of Spaceballs. Tickets are $10.
The panorama is in large-format above -- scroll all the way up.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
