Community Booths

C.R.E.A.T.E. Community Studios will present works in progress of our ongoing multi-disciplinary project titled Erasing Spaces and Faces: The Legacy of Urban Renewal in Saratoga Springs. Artists Marcus Anderson and Jennifer Wojtowicz will present their works and an artist demonstration of a movable mural and small scale reconstructions of erased spaces of urban renewal projects that took place in Saratoga Springs in the 1960's. A community maker-space will be open for attendees to assist in the construction of replicas of lost spaces, which is open to all ages. Attendees can learn more about the history of urban renewal, our archive in progress and oral narratives from residents sharing about the impact of urban renewal on their lives. This program is generously funded by a Saratoga Arts Community Art grant and a Humanities NY grant, and is sponsored by the Saratoga Springs Public Library.
