Wave Hill Events February 24-March 3

Hello March! Come visit Wave Hill and experience the feeling of winter transitioning into spring. Keep an eye out for signs of spring with crocus and snow drops popping up all around. With warm weather right around the corner, this week the Family Art Project explores cacti and succulent plants. 

The gardens provide endless inspiration for our Winter Workspace Artists. Learn more about the artists and their studio practice at our Open Studios on Feb 6. More details below!

During this Open Studios event, meet the artists participating in Session One of the Winter Workspace and see what they’ve been working on over the last eight weeks. Visitors can learn about the artists’ practice, sources and materials. Explore each artist studio, see new and in-process work inspired by Wave Hill and created on site, and meet other art-lovers.

Wave Hill encourages visitors of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to attend Open Studios and bring themselves closer to the inspiring work artists undertake during the Winter Workspace. This event is wheelchair accessible. If you are new to the arts or just want some extra guidance, a Discovery Guide for this event is available at the gallery desk. 

The Winter Workspace is a program that takes place over two, eight-week sessions and provides artists with free studio space, a financial stipend, and access to Wave Hill’s living collection. Session One takes place from January 3 to February 27, 2022. Since its start over ten years ago, the Workspace has supported more than 100 artists. During the Winter Workspace, artists have intimate access to the greenhouses, as well as horticultural and curatorial staff. Experimentation is encouraged and artists expand their practices while working on site. Artists also engage with Wave Hill visitors through Drop-In Sundays, Open Studios, as well as adult or family workshops. At the core of the Winter Workspace is the recognition that creating art within the context of a garden is a unique experience.
