ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A new exhibit is coming to the Albany Museum of Art. And it's something most people have never seen before.

Rather then hanging up the art on the walls, the walls will be the canvas.

Painters will be working for four days to turn a gallery into an urban street style work of art. 

"So it's sort of flipping the tortilla so to speak about how these artists traditionally work and bringing them here to Albany and having them really take over the gallery space and really do large scale wall works," said Dallas Contemporary Director Peter Doroshenko.

The exhibit will be open to the public this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
