Contemporary Artists Center at Woodside

By Patrick Dodson and Timothy Maher

The Contemporary Artists Center moved from North Adams to the former Woodside Church in Troy last winter. The CAC is renovating the church for use as an artist residency program for national, international, and local artists, along with exhibition space.

In July, the org won a $20,000 grant for the renovation from the Chase Community Giving program. And in May it won a $50,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh program.

Patrick Dodson and Timothy Maher are Machine Should Be.

I wonder what use they will make of the bell chime and the pipe organ?

OK, self-correction. The organ is now in Kansas City. It will be tenderly loved there, but yet another piece of local history is gone.

This is such a cool organization, and a great use of that church building. I can't wait until their reconstruction is complete so the building will be open for gallery events.
