Pelham Art Center Debuts Public Art Exhibitions for Wolfs Lane Park

 

Anki King: Human Nature

May 19, 2017 – September 2, 2017

 

Pelham Art Center is pleased to present its inaugural Public Art in the Park exhibition for the launch of the newly renovated Wolfs Lane Park in Pelham. Artist Anki King’s Human Nature will be on view May 19, 2017 through September 2, 2017. An opening reception will be held on Friday, May 19, 2017 beginning at 4:00PM in conjunction with the Wolf Lane Park’s grand opening.

 

Public Art in the Park is Pelham Art Center’s newest program to promote free arts access for the public, and is an extension of its established Public Art in the Courtyard, a series of 3-4 sculpture and installation exhibitions annually.  Located at the corner of Wolfs Lane and 1st Street, and adjacent to the Metro North Pelham train station, Public Art in the Park is a component of the newly renovated Wolfs Lane Park. The sculpture garden area, with signage and attractive seating, will allow the public to enjoy the works of various artists throughout the seasons.  As well as providing another reason for visitors and residents to visit the park, the public art program will bring the works of many artists to the public eye. The specially designated arts area will also allow Pelham Art Center to expand its impact in providing more free arts access and experiences to the public. 

 

The exhibition, Anki King: Human Nature, will be on view at both locations: Pelham Art Center’s

 

Courtyard and Wolfs Lane Park. King’s sculptural work, composed of rebar, wood, and natural

materials, is a beautifully symbolic introductory exhibition for the park, as the work explores human connection to the natural world.   As King explains, “Human Nature speaks to humanity’s dependency on nature, and the tension effected as humanity, which is created out of natural evolution, is at the same time capable of destroying it – and thereby itself. If we are able to see ourselves as part of nature instead of separate from nature, we can be sensitive to the balance that is necessary for us to thrive.”
