Contemporary Adirondacks at one mellon center

PITTSBURGH, PA – December 31, 2008 — The Society for Contemporary Craft’s (SCC) satellite gallery at One Mellon Center features Adirondack chairs and green-design from January 16 through March 1, 2009.

The Adirondack III: Transformation and Reinvention, curated by Christopher Weiland and Steve Loar, opened at the University Museum of Indiana University of Pennsylvania in early spring of 2008, and included 33 chairs by students from 12 universities and colleges from across the country. Participants were challenged, “to revisit, explore, and redesign the century-old Adirondack chair.”

The exhibition at One Mellon Center presents a selection of chairs from the show that were designed by IUP students, along with four other student projects. The works featured represent a focus on green design developed through initiatives at CenterWorks, the Center for Turning’s professional development and business practice division. Through a series of models, sketches and documentary photographs viewers can learn about the student’s creative and green design processes. A catalogue documenting the complete exhibition is available in SCC’s Store and online for purchase for $10.

SCC is a nonprofit, visual arts organization that presents regional, national and international contemporary art in craft media. The satellite gallery is located in the “T” station lobby of One Mellon Bank Center and is open daily through midnight. For more information, visit or contact Kati Fishbein at 412.261.7003 x 26.
