As soon as the bright sun cleared the rainy sky a trio of local artists started on a new wall mural, the latest in a series sponsored by Outside Art: Plattsburgh Art Project.  This one will feature birds of the world.  The work includes sprucing up a concrete barrier in the same driveway.  For more info:

New Mural, New Layer

With scaffolding and an extra long roller local artist Gharan Burton adds the background layer to an upcoming mural.  The wall facing City Hall Place will be painted with a variety of birds.  The project is sponsored by Outdoor Art: Plattsburgh Art Project.  More info at .

For years this stairway has sat behind the Gateway Building in the Durkee Street parking lot.  As you can see it provides practical access to Broad Street.  When a small project ends up this way I have doubts about a large one like the proposed Prime Plattsburgh LLC project that would displace convenient parking in the Durkee Street lot for an apartment complex.
