ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Downtown Albany's art park will reopen Saturday. It's been closed for more than two weeks for a facelift.  Crews painted over all the walls to provide fresh canvases.     

Some artists were given time to paint murals designed to remain there once the public is allowed back in to show their artistic ability.  

"The works that they are doing are such large scale works that what I don't send it as a public canvas  I don't want people coming in and maybe painting on something they've been working on for a day that might be taking a them a week to finish we just kind of gave them a closed opportunity to finish it," said Aaron Blair, downtown manager.     

The park has been closed a little longer than anticipated because rain delayed the work.
