Add to Calendar 03-09-2013 06-10-2013 15 HABITAT FOR ARTISTS Pelham Art Center is pleased to announce the continuation of our Public Art in the Courtyard program with HABITAT for ARTISTS, an artist-run group that explores the nature of creativity, the role of the artist in our communities and how to create dialog with a new audience. What sparks these explorations is a small 6 x 6’, temporary, recycled and reusable studio that HFA installs in varied locations, from city streets to farms and parks. This fall, thanks to a grant from the Junior League of Pelham, Pelham Art Center is partnering with HFA to install a temporary studio in its Courtyard, which will showcase artists from the Westchester/Hudson Valley area, New York City and as far south as Charleston, SC. Passersby can stop and watch, ask questions, and in many cases actually participate in the artistic creation. As a dynamic venue for artists as well, the studio will cause artists to creatively react to the changing environment, engage with the public and pose questions relevant to sustainable practice. Each artist involved in this project will adapt the studio to suit his/her own needs, playing off the work of previous artists or creating his/her own environment. As much as possible, the materials used in the creation of the structure will consist of reclaimed and re-used components. For more information visit https://www.pelhamartcenter.org and http://habitatforartists.org/ Pelham Art Center is located in downtown Pelham on Fifth Avenue, Pelham’s busy commercial thoroughfare. The courtyard is open to the sidewalk and street, and therefore visible to hundreds of passersby and cars every day. Pelham Art Center also attracts thousands of people of all ages to its events, fundraisers, classes and performances. Participating Artists: Jarod Charzewski- Charleston, SC; Margaret Coleman- Brooklyn, NY; Gail Heidel- Brooklyn, NY; Rachel Klinghoffer- Brooklyn, NY; Stacy Miller - New Rochelle ; Colette Murphy- Brooklyn, NY; Victoria Rolett- New Rochelle, NY; Anna Marie Shogren- Brooklyn, NY; Scott Seaboldt- New Rochelle; Chris Smith- Bronx, NY; Andrea Stanislav- New York City/Minneapolis, MN.
