Under the bridge... IT'S TROYBOT!

TroyBot mural

Check it out: There's a new mural under the Green Island Bridge depicting TroyBot.

The mural is on the wall of the Troy-side bridge overpass. It's based on a design by Ben Karis-Nix from Troy Cloth and Paper. A group of volunteers, including RPI and Sage students, helped paint the piece last week.

The TroyBot character is an imagined version of the Green Island Bridge that can transform into a giant robot. The mural depicts TroyBot helping the city after a storm.

Here are a handful of large-format pics.

SAVE US TROYBOT!

AWESOME!

AND presumably destroying the Captain JP. Bwahahahahaha.

I like it. It makes me glad that people do interesting stuff like this.

Great Work!!!!

Love it!

It looks like it should be part of a larger bot, like the Mighty Morphin' Power Ranger vehicles or Voltron (Voltroy?) vehicles would combine.

What other landmarks are part of the collector set?

That is absolutely awesome.

(1) I've always liked the Troybot design - it's cool to see it realized in such a large format

(2) Ben Karis-Nix is a cool guy. I met him when I took an intro to screen printing class at Troy Cloth and Paper. He has good energy and his genuine enthusiasm for printing and teaching really jumps out at you.

Thanks AOA!! We're doing some more touch-ups on the mural this Saturday between 10-2pm if anybody with a steady hand would like to help out? Thanks for all the nice comments, folks!

The Scoop

For a decade All Over Albany was a place for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. It was kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who could help you find out what's up. AOA stopped publishing at the end of 2018.

If winter ever gets its act together and drops more snow on us, there will be sidewalks to shovel. And shortly after that, Albany will... (more)
