Public Art – Wolfs Lane Park
The Pelham Art Center is accepting proposals for temporary public solo and group exhibitions / installations to be installed installed within the five-acre Village of Pelham’s newly redesigned Wolfs Lane Park. Work should be able to stay on site for three to six months and should activate the park, while considering the scale, landscape and overall use of the public space. We strongly encourage site-specific proposals. Proposals will be selected by our Gallery Advisory Committee on the basis of creativity, interactivity, structural integrity and sustainability.
* Creativity/interactivity: Your work should be visually engaging and invite viewers of all ages to enter the court yard to experience the work further.
* Structural Integrity: Your work must be able to withstand three months of exposure to New York weather as well as unsupervised interaction from passers-by and visitors to the Art Center day and night.
* Sustainability: Given the temporary nature of the installation, we encourage the submission of work created with found materials, or from materials that can be temporarily appropriated and then reused after the installation.
Receiving and Removal of Work: The artist will be responsible for transporting their work to and from the Art Center.
Installation: The artist will be responsible for installing and de-installing their artwork. Pelham Art Center will assist the artist.
Publicity: Pelham Art Center will publicize the installation of the work through our regular notices and stories to local media outlets, our email database of 5000 as well as on our website (www.pelhamartcenter.org.) Pelham Art Center is located on Pelham’s main commercial street, with constant foot and car traffic passing by. The courtyard is used frequently by passersby and we can assure a constant flow of traffic and many eyes on the work.
Stipend: Pelham Art Center does provide a artist stipend, with this we also expect at least one educational community engagement.
Timeline: Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
