Today is always the day to bring awareness to and uplift the voices of our community. #BLM Pride Protest banners are finally installed at Gateway Park!!! All pieces of art on the banners were created by LGBTQIA+ members and allies of our community at the BLM Pride Protest. Thank you to @downtown_schenectady for their incredible help installing this project, and a big thank you to @capregionartscenter for continuous support. The fight is not over. Let’s keep working and supporting each other like never before.

1 year ago we hosted #colorthecanal with Friends of the Mohawk-Hudson Bike Hike Trail, showcasing over 100 pieces of artwork along the Rotterdam-Schenectady portion of the trail. This year’s exhibit will be slightly smaller but we are exhibited to begin installation this week of dozens of paintings along the trail. This year's display is a collaborative project with Friends of the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail & Electric City Bike Rescue, Inc
