Pelham Art Center (PAC)is a nonproﬁt educational and cultural institution committed to providing public access to see, study and experience the arts, foster lifelong arts appreciation and thereby strengthen the community. The Art Center was founded in 1970 and now serves more than 16,000 people each year. PAC hosts 6-8 exhibitions per year and works with guest curators and the surrounding community. The exhibitions are always free and open to the public, with an opening reception and often an artist talk. The exhibits showcase a variety of media and artists, there are three guest-curated exhibitions per year, and an Artisan Craft Marketplace in December. Public Art is showcased on the outside of the Pelham Art Center building, in the public courtyard, and in nearby Wolfs Lane Park. PAC has worked with renowned artists to create site-specific installations to engage and excite the community about art. During the annual fall ArtsFest collaboration with New Rochelle, all Public Art areas are filled with musicians, dancers and performance artists. Ten Folk Arts programs occur throughout the year that are free and open to the public.
