"Art Unhinged" - Doors Project Update 

There are still some doors left - and apparently applications are still being considered - even though the original deadline date has passed. Cost is $25 paid to the Troy Community Coalition.  The Troy Eccentric has a great, page 1 story about the Doors project and artist Troy Beverly Booth who is participating.
Take the challenge and participate in this exciting artistic event!  I/ACT Committee Chair Linda Shears (a participating Doors artist) can provide additional information. Linda's phone # is 248-877-3994.
Photos of the doors are available on the city's website at:

It's About Time! An Artsy Evening Party for Troy Artists! 
Jaimi Tarnow, Directory of Events for the Troy Chamber of Commerce will attend the next I/ACT meeting to discuss putting together an evening wine and cheese party where artists can meet and network.
A variety of locations are being considered. One proposed idea is to have an event at Troy's Community Theater -  Ridgedale Players  location to encompass a wider range of arts and culture, other than only visual arts.
If anyone has additional ideas for an art netorking event , please feel free to contact Linda Shears or Charlene Brown (contact info below).
