SAM by Jesse Matulis
We were in downtown Troy this afternoon for some stuff, so we took the opportunity to check out the new Uncle Sam statues around town.
The fiberglass Sams were officially unveiled Friday morning. There are 30 of them around downtown. They're a project from the Troy Downtown BID, and were decorated by local artists and groups. (Here's what they looked like blank.) The plan is for about half the statues to "remain part of the streetscape for the foreseeable future" -- the other half will be auctioned off in November.
Here are photos of a handful of the Sams.
The photos are in large format above -- scroll all the way up.
