Creative Resistance Art Openings: North Troy Peoples’ History Museum, Story Candles and Vacant Buildings Vanished Dreams
September 30, 2016 @ 8:00 am – 8:00 pm EDT
Exhibitions all take place on the same block as the Sanctuary and are part of Troy Night Out. Take the free historic Troy Trolley to and from Freedom Square with stops at the Arts Center, Collar Works, and through the Breathing Lights installation. Branda Ann Kenneally’s North Troy Peoples’ History Museum is presented at 3334 6th Avenue, Troy. In a newly-reclaimed once-abandoned building, young peoples’ stories are situated alongside a timeline of Troy’s rich history in an exploration of post-industrial culture. Kenneall’s Story Candles will be parked in front of 3334 6th Avenue and features a 16-ft cargo trailer that has been transformed into a participatory traveling installation. Story Candles is a “memory bank” honoring the lives of children from urban neighborhoods in the Capital Region whose lives ended too soon. Vacant Buildings, Vanished Dreams is a project of the Youth Media Sanctuary in collaboration with Julie Casper Roth and Melissa Sarris. Neighborhood ambassadors will lead walking tours supplemented by an interactive map. Sponsored by the Workforce Development Institute.
