‘In Ply’ at the Arts Center

The Arts Center in Troy has an exciting exhibit in the works:

A band of artists converging on a single mission to create an environment that can be used without regard to a specific means of interaction outside of community use and art. Over fifty artists create work within the narrative of skate culture including skate decks, street art, skate photography, and carpentry. The exhibit will include a skate ramp built in house for public use.

The exhibit will run from Jan 22 to April 5 with an opening reception on February 28 from 6-8pm.

Learn more and RSVP on the Facebook event, and also be sure to check out their calendar of future exhibits.
