Delaware Trolley Tree Sculpture Dedication – Sept. 22

The Albany Public Library and Delaware neighborhood are formally dedicating the Delaware Trolley Tree Sculpture on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at 4:30 pm at the Delaware Branch.

Please join us for the dedication ceremony, during which you will hear from people and organizations instrumental in creating the sculpture, including the library, Delaware Avenue Merchants Group, city of Albany, artist, and more. The ceremony will take place outside on the back patio of the Delaware Branch library, at 331 Delaware Avenue, and is expected to last about 30 minutes.

The Delaware Trolley Tree Sculpture was created by local artist Matt Hart as a memorial to Virginia Bowers, Albany native, former city historian, and Delaware neighborhood booster. The sculpture is crafted from trolley tracks that used to run along Delaware Avenue. The sculpture is a celebration of Albany’s history and the vibrant Delaware neighborhood.

We look forward to seeing you on Sept. 22 for the Delaware Trolley Tree Sculpture dedication.
