Sunday, Nov. 6 from noon to 5 p.m. take a trolley to three sites in downtown Troy to celebrate the city’s bicentennial.
The Arts Center of the Capital Region, the Rennselaer County Historical Society and the Tech Valley Center of Gravity are celebrating Troy’s Bicentennial. Join us for a fun filled day of creating, making, and celebrating Troy’s past, present and future! Making Troy has been generously funded by the Troy Savings Bank Foundation
A trolley will be available to take you from site to site!
PAST: The Arts Center will pay homage to the man, the myth, the legend, Uncle Sam. Participants will learn how to make their own natural sausage links in our kitchen. Then visit our printmaking studio to create their own personalized printed historical documents, and go home with one of Troy’s famous ceramic bricks as a momento!
PRESENT: At The Tech Valley Center of Gravity, families will learn about Troy’s iron-working past and make castings using 3D printed molds. Watch an operating forge melt metal and pour it into forms, and learn about this part of Troy’s industrial history!
FUTURE: RCHS will create a contextual program of space, materials and instruction for students from across the City of Troy to visualize and creatively build their own collaborative model of Troy as they imagine it will be in 2116.
