Alley Action and Taylor Apartment tenants to paint mural under Congress Street Bridge
Sid Fleisher and Barbara Nelson have been working on the Alley Action program in Troy over the past few years, and completed a book in 2006 called "The Troy Alley Improvement Project". The project encourages people to take ownership of their neighborhoods through community action, and they have organized several of these paint-by-number style murals.
The wall has already been cleaned and primed with the help of the Rensselaer County Jail work release program, and the main part of the drawing was applied to the wall last night. More information is available at www.trolleyaction.org, or stop by tomorrow and see the painting in action for yourself. Below is a flier with more information.
