The Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is where the arts, sciences, and technology interact with and influence each other by using the same facilities and technologies, and by breathing the same air. We host artists and researchers to produce and present new work in a building designed with sophisticated architectural and technical infrastructure. Four exceptional venues and studios enable audiences, artists, and researchers to inquire, experiment, develop, and experience the ever-changing relationship between ourselves, technology, and the worlds we create around us.
It was built to implement a new combined fire and police silent alarm system in the early 1920s, using telephone wires instead of human bell-ringers. This represented the last step in Troy’s efforts to prevent the devastating fires of the 19th century from destroying so much of the city again. It continued to be used for that purpose until 1968, and in 2003 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Freedom Square is The Sanctuary for Independent Media's iconic outdoor stage and community square.
The gasholder building is located in South Troy. A large, round brick building with a domed roof and cupola, it was built to house coal gas. It’s currently used for storage. While the building isn’t open to the public, it’s interesting to come upon it nestled in among the short row houses and narrow streets of South Troy. It was built in 1873 by the Troy Gas Light Company. Designed by Frederick A. Sabbaton, a prominent New York State gas engineer, the structure once housed a large two-lift iron gasholder that rose and fell according to the amount of illuminating gas being stored in it. The Troy Gas Light company first supplied the city with illuminating gas in 1848.
