Open Gallery


A new public art program kicks off with a Garden Party event September 6

The Downtown Albany BID will host the Open Gallery Garden Party on September 6 at 5:30 PM at Liberty Park (2 Liberty Street). 

Tickets | $40-$500 | Purchase online

Save the date for the official launch party for Open Gallery, a new placemaking and public art program presented by the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District and Albany Center Gallery.

Open Gallery will transform Albany’s side streets and alleyways into vibrant, active connective corridors with local artwork curated by Albany Center Gallery. Inspired by a wildly successful program in Louisville, Kentucky, back entrances to commercial buildings in Downtown will become an outdoor gallery featuring the work of a diverse range of talented and passionate artists.

The event will honor the Albany Barn's founding board members with the Norman S. Rice Arts, Culture & Education Award.

Tickets for the event include food, beverage, and live music. Proceeds benefit future public art programs and the continued revitalization of downtown Albany.

Open Gallery is supported in part by the Fairgame for the Theater Arts grant, as well as by the Amplify Albany Grant Program, a program made possible by the City of Albany Capital Resource Corporation and Capitalize Albany Corporation.
