BUILT promotes awareness of Albany’s built environment and raises funds for preservation efforts. For the past 12 years we’ve used our annual art exhibit & silent auction to highlight the issue of vacant buildings in Albany. With BUILT, we extend this artistic lens not just on vacant architecture, but onto Albany’s entire BUILT environment. A portion of the proceeds from the reception and art sales will benefit the Foundation’s programming and technical services.

New this year! In partnership with Breathing Lights, the Call for Art has been extended to include Troy and Schenectady. There is also a Breathing Lights After-Party. A shuttle will run from the New York State Museum, through the Breathing Lights Installation, to Albany Barn.


In 2014, we had over 190 pieces of amazing artwork from 90 great artists. Click the button at the right to see examples of artwork & prize winners.
