Albany's Downtown Director Aaron Blair call the 100 Block Street Art Competition a big success.

The Street Art Competition was by invitation, with contestants drawn from those who registered and provided two examples of their work.

The Art Park on Pine hosted artists from around the region for a juried street art mural competition on May 17.

Each artist, or team of artists, was given a designated section of wall space in the Artpark from 9am - 6pm to paint a mural. The winners were announced at 7pm, followed by the after party.

The first Place winners Russ Carter and Josh O'Malley got $300.00 for 'Mary' and an invitation to 100 Block: Street Art Competition Sept 6th.

'Smoking' by Alan Sifuentes and Lucas Rochelean took 2nd Place and $100.00.

'Boom or Bloom' by Freddie Smith and Geremy Brantley took 3rd Place and $50.00. 

Teams up to two artists entered, and they had to supply their own paint.    Canvases were limited to 10' wide by 8' tall.
