Arts Center launches (Re)Imagining Troy project

TROY - An effort is underway in the heart of the city's historic downtown to elicit visions for the city's future.

The (Re)Imagining Troy Project is soliciting ideas from community members for how Troy can become a more livable city. A panel of 15 local leaders will then choose the 25 best ideas submitted, which will then be displayed on the project's website.

The project "is an opportunity to leverage creative thinking for the betterment of Troy and its residents," said Chris Marblo, president of The Arts Center of the Capital Region, in a statement.

The project, sponsored by The Arts Center of the Capital Region, will be accepting ideas until Feb. 28. Those submissions can take the form of words, models, images, sketches and any other medium that can convey a concept. Submissions can be sent to project@artscenteronline.org. For submission guidelines visit www.artscenteronline.org/ReImagining-Troy
