Professor Behind Waterbury Comic Convention Studies Black Characters

Professor Behind Waterbury Comic Convention Studies Black Characters

Like most American children of the 1950s, William Foster III, liked comic books. They were cheap, they were readily available from any drug store or newsstand in his native Philadelphia, and they were—well, exciting and fun. He liked the plots, he liked the characters—but then it dawned on him: he never saw a face like his own.

Pelham Art Center Presents HABITAT FOR ARTISTS

Event Date/Time

Sep 3, 2013 to Oct 6, 2013
10:00 am until 5:00 pm

Description

Pelham Art Center Presents HABITAT FOR ARTISTS

Pelham Art Center is pleased to announce the continuation of our Public Art in the Courtyard program with HABITAT for ARTISTS,  an artist-run group that explores the nature of creativity, the role of the artist in our communities and how to create dialog with a new audience.

What sparks these explorations is a small 6 x 6’, temporary, recycled and reusable studio that HFA installs in varied locations, from city streets to farms and parks. This fall, thanks to a grant from the Junior League of Pelham, Pelham Art Center is partnering with HFA to install a temporary studio in its Courtyard, which will showcase artists from the Westchester/Hudson Valley area, New York City and as far south as Charleston, SC.  Passersby can stop and watch, ask questions, and in many cases actually participate in the artistic creation.

As a dynamic venue for artists as well, the studio will cause artists to creatively react to the changing environment, engage with the public and pose questions relevant to sustainable practice.  Each artist involved in this project will adapt the studio to suit his/her own needs, playing off the work of previous artists or creating his/her own environment. As much as possible, the materials used in the creation of the structure will consist of reclaimed and re-used components. For more information visit https://www.pelhamartcenter.org and http://habitatforartists.org/

Pelham Art Center is located in downtown Pelham on Fifth Avenue, Pelham’s busy commercial thoroughfare.  The courtyard is open to the sidewalk and street, and therefore visible to hundreds of passersby and cars every day.  Pelham Art Center also attracts thousands of people of all ages to its events, fundraisers, classes and performances.

Participating Artists:

Jarod Charzewski- Charleston, SC;  Margaret Coleman- Brooklyn, NY;  Gail Heidel- Brooklyn, NY; Rachel Klinghoffer- Brooklyn, NY;  Stacy Miller - New Rochelle ; Colette Murphy- Brooklyn, NY; Victoria Rolett- New Rochelle, NY;  Anna Marie Shogren- Brooklyn, NY;  Scott Seaboldt- New Rochelle;  Chris Smith- Bronx, NY;  Andrea Stanislav- New York City/Minneapolis, MN

HFA Collective Group- Hudson Valley:  Michael Asbill, Ina Braun, Lisa Breznak, Thomas DangVu, Simon Draper, Faheem Haider, Michelle Hersh, Marnie  Hillsley, Jessica Poser, Beth E Wilson
