From March 31-April 14, the Arts Center of the Capital Region ( 265 River Street, Troy) will host Troy River City | Living with Water art exhibition. The opening Reception will be on Friday, March 31, 5-9PM.
This exhibition explores Troy’s past and possible future as a river city in the Hudson Valley, bringing together historic photographs and aerial imagery that show Troy and its river through time. In addition, new maps, models and speculative scenarios by landscape architecture faculty and students at Cornell University will offer multiple visions for how Troy might remake itself by reclaiming its riverfront and re-imagining itself as a river city. The work has been done over three years in collaboration with Chico Christopher and TAP, Inc., with support from the New York State Water Resources Institute and the Department of Environmental Conservation Hudson River Estuary Program, with support from the New York State Environmental Protection Fund.
