May 28th Leadership Troy Art Forum was at "Hit"
Wow! Many thanks to Jim Cyrulewski, President and Tom Kaszubski, Vice President of Leadership Troy for enabling a great discussion about artwork in Troy, what other cities are doing, and the Kmart doors "Art Unhinged" project.
We also learned more about the extensive  art exhibits at the library and the progress that I/ACT has made. The Troy Trails and Pathways were also discussed with the suggestion that sculptures could be used to create interest points along the paths. 
Our illustrious speakers included: Bob Schultz, Linda Shears, Maria Hunciag and Cheryl Whitton.
The event also received excellent recognition in the following articles:
Troy Eccentric:  "Doors to New Tomorrow " 
Somerset Gazette: "Art Forum Explores Potential for the City"
