Anyone who visits, lives, or works in Downtown will now have permanent access to art by an internationally recognized artist, thanks to a partnership between ParkAlbany, Albany Center Gallery, Albany Barn, and a number of Downtown organizations. The mural by Brooklyn-based Hellbent, is the second to be placed on the Quackenbush Garage. Upon completion, it 65 feet tall and 115 feet wide and will cover all six stories of the structure, wrapping around the south and west sides.

Hellbent, known for using bright colors and patterns to create vibrant street art, was inspired by Albany’s history, including its architecture and Dutch roots, for the original piece which can be viewed from the street and the I-787 on-ramp from Broadway. The garage is located on Orange Street between Broadway and Water Street.



The piece joins a mural on the north side of the building that features six soaring bluebirds painted last year by Albany-based artist Michael Conlin.
