Re:Growth: A Celebration of Art, Riverside Park and the New York Spirit

June 5- September 13, 2021

A Public Art Exhibition Produced by the Riverside Park Conservancy — Curated by Karin Bravin

Re: Growth is a site-specific public art exhibition that will include work by over twenty artists. With diverse installations ranging across several miles, this outdoor exhibit will give people a safe, entertaining celebration to enjoy as we slowly emerge from the pandemic. 

The exhibit will focus on all aspects of Regrowth and its many connotations: literal, metaphorical, poetic, philosophical. The projects will infuse the park from 68th Street to 145th Street with color and unexpected materials expanding visitors’ ideas of how to encounter art. We all are finding the need to escape the confines of our interior spaces. Trees and grass allow us to escape our urban environment for a moment; Re:Growth will enrich that experience, allowing us to appreciate the creativity and diversity that exist in New York City.

The exhibition includes 16 site-specific installations and an additional ten flag and banner projects. Artists Include: Blanka Amezkua, Kenseth Armstead, Vanessa Albury, Lee Boroson, Dahlia Elsayed,Mark Joshua Epstein,Rico Gatson, DeWitt Godfrey, Joshua Goode, Valerie Hegarty, Wennie Huang, Beth Krebs, Sadie Laska, Niki Lederer, Wendy Letven, LoVid, Mary Mattingly, Joiri Minaya, Sui Park, Shuli Sadé, Jean Shin, Glen Wilson, Letha Wilson, Woolpunk.

Exhibition runs until Spring 2020

Opened July 18, 2019  6-8pm
Extended! Closed June 30, 2020.

Pelham Art Center presents a public exhibition of sculpture by Niki Lederer in Wolfs Lane Park and at the Pelham Art Center. Niki Lederer reclaims discarded objects to create her sculpture. Dissected and reassembled plastic bottles lend a playful juxtaposition of organic and flat that emerges through the artist’s spontaneous, intuitive process.

Sculptures featured in Wolf’s Lane Park and Pelham Art Center’s courtyard.

The Pelham Art Center—Community Art Day—Sunday, June 2nd

The Pelham Art Center will host its first annual Community Art Day on Sunday, June 2nd, from 12-4pm. Join the Art Center as they kick off summer with all-afternoon art festivities throughout the courtyard, gallery, studios and media lab.

Interactive art will fill the Fifth Avenue courtyard, where attendees can take part in a number of colorful community projects. Brooklyn artist Niki Lederer will assemble a recycled art installation onsite, making a vibrant reflection on environmental impact. Attendees can witness the spirit of spontaneity and sustainability in Lederer’s work.

In addition to her sculpture, her colorful flags made of repurposed umbrellas will be a sneak peek of her coming exhibition in Wolfs Lane Park this summer. The Art Center courtyard will be adorned with art made by community participants.

Community Art Day is a celebration of Pelham Art Center’s mission to strengthen community by fostering arts participation and appreciation. In anticipation of its 50th Anniversary, the Art Center opens its doors for old friends and newcomers alike to experience all that the Art Center offers. Looking forward to the semi-centennial, Executive Director Charlotte Mouquin says, “We greatly hope to see you and share our visions for the Art Center at Community Art Day.  Being relatively new to Pelham and the Art Center, I embrace opportunities to meet our constituents and supporters. This event recalls our roots in the 1970 Pelham Art Happening.”

This event is free and open to the public, rain or shine.
