"Pieces of Us" by Christie Rose and Robert Cooper
"Pieces of Us" is a public art installation by local photographers Robert Cooper and Christie Rose, in collaboration with Albany Center Gallery, featuring photos of 60+ individuals from the area. Its intention is to foster a sense of community togetherness. Artists Robert Cooper and Christie Rose encouraged people to meet them in Troy for a spontaneous photoshoot earlier this month to gather images for the project.
Christie and Robert wheatpasted the portraits as a mural-scale collage on plywood during the August 5, pARTy @ ACG and artists’ reception at the Albany Center Gallery. The Gallery was celebrating the opening of two exhibits, Passports (Curated by Willie Marlowe) and Connections (Member & Friend Show), as well as a 45th Anniversary archive display.
