Partners, City Celebrate Poughkeepsie Gateway Mural Aug. 15

Poughkeepsie Alliance, Arts Mid-Hudson and O+ Poughkeepsie invite the public to the unveiling ceremony for the Poughkeepsie Gateway mural Wednesday, Aug. 15 at 4 p.m. Mayor Rob Rolison will give a keynote as part of the celebration at the Poughkeepsie Train Pavilion, corner of Main Street and Detective John Falcone Memorial Avenue.

The mural encompasses both sides of the nearby Route 9 underpass on Main Street. Poughkeepsie-based artist Risa Tochigi, part of the art duo boogieREZ, has spent a month transforming the underpass into a public artwork.

Special thanks to Golden Paintworks Mural Paints and RL Baxter.
