On Friday, September 21, Albany Center Gallery and Albany Barn collaborated with local artists to set up a “studio” space in a Downtown Albany parking spot, showing a day in the life of a working artist and providing a window into the creativity that often occurs away from public view. In a second spot, the two organizations created an interactive live/work space for artists and community members complete with a bed, walls, and art supplies. The final spot brought it all together by presenting a powerful statement on the importance of art and the necessity of strong, dedicated community support in sustaining its existence. The public was encouraged to participate by “feeding the meter” and buying time for the installations.
