Gawking at the newly finished mural on the Quackenbush Garage in downtown Albany

Quackenbush Garage Hellbent mural finished

Right to the point: Here's a handful of photos the newly finished mural on the Quackenbush Garage in downtown Albany.

The artist Hellbent was in town last week(end) working on the mural. His inspirations for some of the patterns in the mural: Dutch porcelain, the orange and blue of the city flag, and some of local deco architecture.

It's part of the same collaboration between the Albany Parking Authority and Albany Center Gallery that produced the bluebird mural on the opposite side of the garage last year.

Let's have a look...

why can't thy o this o the old central warehouse ???
as my father would say;
Old Barn...Fresh coat of paint

Extra layer of paint may increase value of building too much and become a problem for eventual demolition.

...uh, also, Central Warehouse is privately owned, and without permission that would be vandalism (though even vandalism makes that building look better).
