Urban Dictionary defines smAlbany as the capital of New York, so named because of its diminutive size, especially compared to New York City. I guess this smallness is what contributes to a frequent occurrence around the area in which you inevitably see someone you know everywhere you go. I have often been out with friends and we?ll run into a random person that we know but were never expecting to see. A typical response to this type of situation is to brush it off and say, ?That?s smAlbany!?

Albany has all the right ingredients for the smAlbany effect to take place. It?s a small enough city in both population and geographic size so that people feel like a part of the community and often frequent the same restaurants, bars, and stores, but it?s also big enough that it?s a surprise to come across certain people, and they can catch you off-guard. Other cities of similar size have been known to experience the smAlbany effect as well, but they have yet to personalize this phenomenon and continue to say, ?It?s a small world,? in response to these situations.

UAG presents smAlbany, an exhibition of artwork inspired by the city of Albany, NY, with featured artist Pilar Arthur-Snead, and side room artist, Lorenz Worden.
