Downtown is Pawsome Nipper statues prep Tony Iadicicco

But there are exceptions.

While in downtown Albany Monday we happened upon Albany Center Gallery Tony Iadicicco applying a weatherproof coat to the Nipper statutes that have been decorated by local artists for the upcoming "Downtown is Pawsome" public art project. There are a few more pics below if you want a small sneak peek.

As we mentioned a few weeks back, the Downtown Albany BID call for submissions got so many applications that the org decided to do 20 statues instead of the originally-planned 10. They'll start popping up around downtown soon.

There's a garden party in Tricentennial Park to celebrate the project this Friday, June 16 starting at 5:30 pm. Tickets are $60 ahead / $65 at the door. (There's also a $40 ticket if you're under age 30.) Proceeds will benefit the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society and other BID projects around downtown.






Steampunk Nipper is brilliant.

Can't wait to see all the puppies.

I LOVE the one by DayDreamHunter -- orange/yellow/black.

Cannot wait to see those nips!

Excited to see all of the lovely puppies- please post a map if possible.
