ACE Creative Economy Mixer: Peek into the Past
Historic Bank @ 50 Fourth Street, Troy
Wednesday, July 28, 5:30-7:30pm

At the first ACE Creative Economy Mixer of 2021 (and since COVID!), we'll celebrate the unrivaled beauty -- and economic value -- of the Capital Region's rich history. You're the first to be invited inside the stunningly restored UNION NATIONAL BANK space. HBO representatives will be on hand to discuss why and how "The Gilded Age" production came to Troy in a group discussion led by The Hart Cluett Museum's new Executive Director, Starlyn D'Angelo.

Enjoy food from La Capital Tacos, craft beer from Rare Form Brewing, mingle with costumed characters, all while being serenaded with the deep lounge beat stylings of DJ Pat Diesel. Additionally, members of the Cafe Euphoria team, a soon to be downtown Troy destination, will be on hand talking about their upcoming plans for a trans* worker owned and operated cafe / coworking community space.  
Thank you to our project partners: HBO, Francis J. Musso, 2440 Design Studio, co-mads, Hart-Cluett Museum, The Costumer, NAI Platform and Photographer Justin Higgins.
