The Celebration of the Arts offered a chance to celebrate what it means to be a part of the Susan Odell Taylor School community.

- Mingle with friends and supporters past, present and future 

- Enjoy fabulous student artwork and projects

- Take home a one-of-a-kind item from our Artisans Market

- Cash bar available


The Celebration of the Arts is a community builder but we also raise funds to support the school.  Proceeds from the Celebration of the Arts benefit two of our most essential programs:  the arts and the financial aid fund.


How can you be part of the Celebration?

  • Attend the Celebration  
  •  Invite a friend or two!

Our 2016 event was held at The Tech Valley Center of Gravity in downtown Troy.

There was no set ticket price for entrance to the event.  We asked that you make a donation to support the school. 

Tech Valley Center of Gravity

2016 Location: The Tech Valley Center of Gravity is a membership organization offering space, equipment, education and camaraderie to makers, hackers, crafters, tinkerers and artists. We have a beautiful new makerspace in a renovated century-old building in downtown Troy. We also sponsor and participate in maker and education events all over the NYS Capital Region. Tech Valley Center of Gravity is located at 30 Third Street, Troy, NY  12180
