LIVE: Troy Night Out @ Various Locations Around Troy, 10/25/13

Review and video by Joel Patterson

Plenty of lavishly costumed superheroes and princesses this month, but the really scary ones are the artists! And the strange preoccupations they settle on… well, the guy whirling the fireballs around was dangerous if you weren’t careful…

This month, Sam Altekruz is ready to dismantle his art installation of 650 hanging garlic cloves; Ben Atlman describes his Arts Center show concerning the complexity of identity; Claire Sherwood discusses her latest creations celebrating and exploring nature and industrial production; we view a recreated black light dorm room ceiling from 1970; we learn about the soothing and invigorating Troy Healing Arts; Robilee McIntyre shows her elaborate, symbolically outfitted sculptures; Patrick Sherwood tells us why evocative landscapes capture his imagination; Amy Halloran composes poetry on the spot; we judge a pumpkin contest at the Botanic Garden; and listen to the transporting, wild and dreamy sounds of the Keith Pray Soul Jazz Revival – and wonder, “Where’s Keith?”
