PELHAM, N.Y. -- Pelham Art Center's second Storefront Project, "Upcycled through Design," will be on view from Friday, July 11 through Sunday, Aug. 10 through the storefront windows of 156 Fifth Ave., across the street from The Pelham Art Center.

An opening reception in conjunction with the annual Faculty and Student Showcase is set for 6:30 p.m. July 11 in the gallery.

It will include a pop-up exhibition of three collaborative works of art created by 34 artists associated with The Institutes of Applied Human Dynamics, Inc. (IAHD) in the Bronx.

IAHD will lead two free all-ages hands-on workshops to teach the techniques used to make the work in the exhibition.

The first workshop will be held during the opening reception and will focus on eco-dyeing fabric using onion skins and flower petals.
The second workshop titled, "Art & Reuse in the Studio" is set for 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 19, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Both workshops will be held in Pelham Art Center’s Studio 1.

IAHD's vision is promoting awareness of the breadth and beauty of work produced by artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as providing a community-inclusive life for those individuals.

Working collaboratively, using only recycled common materials such as fabric-samples, notions and buttons, this artist group will present two colorful collages and a sculptural wall work.
