Creating art access for all has been a priority of our ongoing mission at Albany Center Gallery. By showcasing and highlighting regional artists, since 1977, we exhibit, promote, support and foster creativity, but also inclusivity and community.

We are pleased to share that our latest project was in partnership with our friends at the Center for Disability Services along with Abigail Ruth, and local artist Cara Hanley. This project aimed to highlight individuals that the center serves, having them create and color work the designs by Cara during group sessions this past month. Art has a way to connect people, and this mural highlights that.

"When asked to create a mural for the Center for Disability Services, I wanted to focus on inclusivity and was influenced by two of the key tenets of the Center’s mission statement: enrichment and empowerment of people with disabilities. Participants at the center painted pieces of the mural, and I worked to tie their work together into one cohesive painting that retained their individual artistic contributions. The final mural reflects the limitless and wonder the Center aims to inspire in its participants." - Cara Hanley

This piece is part of the moveable murals series. The mural is 8ft tall by 16ft long and will be installed at the Center.
