Art @ APL

The Art Exhibition Program at Albany Public Library is dedicated to exhibiting the work of contemporary artists connected to the Capital Region.

Through the integration of artwork in public spaces within the library, the program aims to enrich the experience of patrons and the community, using visual art to further the APL mission to: educate, entertain, and empower our community.
