Pelham Art Center is proud to bring Glowtown to the Westchester community, in conjunction with the exhibition, Light Matter, free of charge.
Glowtown is an art-making workshop that develops individual creativity and teamwork within a community-building environment. By using everyday, simple, cast-away materials, along with the magic of glow-in-the-dark paint, participants come together to invent a fantastical world that never existed before, both during the day and at night!
Glowtown was conceived and is led by internationally renowned artist,Sharon Louden. Since 1999, Louden has been conducting Glowtown workshops all over the country in many venues, including the Education Departments of many museums including the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Katonah Museum of Art, and the Birmingham Museum of Art. Participants of all ages have participated, from young children to high school students to adults in corporate team-building retreats. Glowtown is for all ages and meant to be an exercise to bring people together.
The final “glow town” will be displayed in Pelham Art Center’s window facing Fifth Avenue.
