I have admired Franc Palaia's work throughout the City of Poughkeepsie over the years, and have always been drawn to his murals. One, in particular, is the storefront mural that has been on Main St in Poughkeepsie for over a decade.

Not only has Palaia's work been seen all over Poughkeepsie and throughout the Hudson Valley, but his impressive resume includes work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY, the White House, the New Museum, the Smithsonian Institute and numerous other places according to his website. Check out some of his amazing work here, including many works available for purchase.

According to a source the property at 1820 Route 82 was once known as Pince Cones Ice Parlor. This property is now it is available for purchase but not as an ice cream store. Now it is a beautifully renovated residence that was last occupied by an owner who is a well-known artist, sculptor, painter, and animation designer. Wait until you see inside. Bring your ideas.
