BUILT 2017

BUILT2017 posterHistoric Albany Foundation's annual BUILT event returns to the State Museum this Saturday. Blurbage for the art show/auction/reception:

BUILT promotes awareness of Albany's built environment and raises funds for preservation efforts. For the past 15 years we've used our annual art exhibit & silent auction to highlight the issue of vacant buildings in Albany. With BUILT, we extend this artistic lens not just on vacant architecture, but onto the entire BUILT environment. A portion of the proceeds from the reception and art sales will benefit the Foundation's programming and technical services.

Works by artists inspired by the local built environment will be on display and available for purchase. That link above includes photos from previous years.

BUILT is this Saturday, November 4 from 6:30-9:30 pm. Tickets are $85 / $55 for ages 35 and under and available online.

Always the best party of the year!

Fabulous and well dressed people, top notch conversation, scads of delectable food and libations, art galore and carousel rides!

You know that event that you're always looking to dress up for and rub arms with the swells? This is is.

Say Something!

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.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
