The Underground Gallery Opening: Troy Project by Susan B. Anthony

October 21, 2017 @ 5:00 pm 7:00 pm EDT

The Sanctuary’s Underground Gallery presents Susan B. Anthony’s “Troy Project.” This photo series compares the city of Troy’s heyday during the Industrial Revolution with its present challenges, through intimate portraits and cityscapes. The exhibit will be on view from September 29th through December 16th, 2017.

Art Opening: “Troy Project” with Susan Anthony

A map of Troy, New York, with several pinpoints along the Hudson River. These pinpoints list names and addresses.

“My photographs depict the juxtaposition of past and present, old and new, decay and rebirth in this remarkable historical city. Troy was once one of the most prosperous cities in the United States thanks to its proximity to natural resources–especially the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers and the Erie Canal. The city suffered greatly when industry moved out and its economy has never really recovered. There are signs of change because of the community’s resilience, but it is a slow, uphill battle. The story of Troy is one of suffering and sadness, but also of hope and growth.” 

Susan B. Anthony has been an artist all her life. She was born in Brooklyn and now splits her time between Manhattan and Columbia County. Many of her photographs are set in Upstate New York.
