The medium is highly adaptable, and each artist has works selected to show the possibilities of the medium and the breadth of their vision. The new public artwork by Sui Park in the courtyard consists of five exciting creations that hang, lay and stand in different areas in the courtyard and around the art center. The materials are non-durable, disposable, trivial and easily consumed. Hours: Mon., Wed. & Thurs., 10 a.m.-6 p.m. www.pelhamartcenter.org.
