The Pelham Art Center is seeking proposals for temporary public art, including solo and group exhibitions to be installed within the five-acre Village of Pelham’s newly redesigned Wolfs Lane Park. This exhibition will launch a newly created sculpture garden as well as introducing the entire park renovation to the public. We are looking for work that will be sited for three to six months, activates 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. The work will be installed across from the Metro North Railroad Pelham Station, at 1st Street and Wolf’s Lane in the Village of Pelham.
* Creativity/interactivity: Your work should be visually engaging and invite viewers of all ages to enter the park 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 Pelham 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.
