We are very excited to announce our participation in Albany Airport’s Exhibition Case Program! The Exhibition Case Program is a facet of the Airport’s Art & Culture Program, which showcases the artists and cultural institutions that reside in New York’s Capital Region.

So, if you’re traveling through Albany Airport this year, be sure to stop by Terminal A to see our display.

Thank you Tom Stock and Julie Hutchinson for your artistic and technical expertise to help us make the most of this wonderful opportunity!
