PELHAM, NY.- A public installation of sculptures by Don Porcaro is now on view in the Pelham Art Center courtyard.

The installation, entitled A Short Story, brings together Don Porcaro’s interest in the human form, archeology, man-made objects and whimsy. Works from his Childhood’s End (2008) and Nomad (2011) series will be on view in the courtyard adjacent to the Pelham Art Center’s gallery through mid Fall 2020. Visitors can view the colorful abstract sculptures outdoors at Pelham Art Center, located at 155 Fifth Avenue, Pelham. This is Don Porcaro’s first presentation of his outdoor sculptures in Westchester County.

Executive Director Charlotte Mouquin expresses, “We are excited to be exhibiting Don’s sculptures in our courtyard. I hope his witty and whimsical sculptures will invite people to linger in our outdoor spaces and continue to visit the Pelham Art Center as we develop a robust program of exhibitions, events and classes for our phased re-opening to the public.”

Don Porcaro is a Hell’s Kitchen-based artist whose work explores the nature of human interaction with the physical world through archeology and man-made objects like tools and toys. Don Porcaro has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally including in the Whitney Biennial, NYC; the D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts, Springfield, MA; Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, New Paltz, NY; the Visual Arts Center in Summit, NJ; the Monaco Sculpture Biennial, Monaco, France; and the upcoming 2021 Sculpture Triennial in Bad Ragatz, Switzerland. In 2018 he was commissioned by New Jersey Transit to create a sculpture for the Jersey Ave. Light Rail platform and in 2011 was the U.S. representative at the Forma Viva International Sculpture Symposium in Portoroz, Slovenia. His work is in numerous public and private collections and he has been reviewed in the New York Times, Sculpture Magazine, Art in America, Artnews, and BOMB, among others. Porcaro is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award, a NY Foundation for the Arts Grant, a New York State Council on the Arts Grant and a Teaching Excellence Award from Parsons School of Design, where he is currently Professor Emeritus of Fine Arts. He received his MFA in Sculpture from Columbia University and currently lives and works in Manhattan.
