Pelham Art Center will host a public meditation on Saturday, September 11th 12:00-2:00pm. Inside the gallery, visitors are invited to participate in a silent group meditation memorializing 9/11 and all those whose lives are lost and affected. Outside in the courtyard, guests may share reflections and experiences. This event is free and open to all who wish to remember, reflect, and invoke peace through meditation. Our public meditation accompanies the gallery exhibition GESTURE by Manju Shandler.
