Throughout 2020, Discover Albany is highlighting Artful Albany by showcasing the many ways art is featured throughout the community in restaurants, meeting spaces, historic sites, rural areas, craft beverage facilities and more. 

Downtown Albany is looking bright! Vibrant murals are sprinkled throughout downtown with the goal to inspire the community with uplifting, educational or thought-provoking works of public art. Albany Center Gallery, Albany Barn and Albany Parking Authority spearheaded this public art endeavor dubbed #CapitalWalls. These eye-catching murals even inspired the "Artful Albany" theme for the 2020 Discover Albany Visitors Guide! Scroll on to view the murals, artists and locations.
