“Heavy” is a multicultural arts and music event to benefit the restoration of St. Joseph’s Church.The
four day event will feature a plethora of visual artists, musicians, and dancers showing and performing
live in St. Joseph’s Church. Over the four day event patrons will also enjoy exquisite food and drink
presented by some of the Capital Region’s finest restaurants...
St. Joseph's Church was designed by noted American Architect Patrick Keely. Since its dedication in 1860, St. Joseph’s Church has graced the downtown Albany skyline. In 1993 the church held its last service and was sold to a private owner and eventually becoming the property of the City of Albany. By the end of that transitional decade, the church building had deteriorated considerably and faced demolition.
In June 2003 the City transferred ownership of the church to Historic Albany Foundation. The Foundation immediately rose to the occasion to spearhead an effort to save St. Joseph's. Historic Albany Foundation hosted a series of public meetings to get community input on St. Joseph's future. The concerned citizens who attended those meetings overwhelmingly recommended that the building serve as a community resource.
