Sunroom Project Space Program
Application DEADLINE is MAY 15, 2013.
The Sunroom Project Space is a venue for New York City emerging artists to create a special project or site-specific work in one of the two windowed sunrooms in Wave Hill’s Glyndor House. Five artists are selected each year for six-week solo exhibitions. Work in all media is considered, and artists are encouraged to experiment with the parameters of traditional display and exhibition formats.

Van Lier Visual Artist Fellowship
NEW GUIDELINES AND DEADLINE TBA.
Wave Hill administers a Visual Artist Fellowship on behalf of the Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund of the New York Community Trust. This one-year fellowship is open to New York City-based artists, who are 30 years of age or younger and are not currently enrolled in a degree-granting program. The fellowship provides emerging artists from culturally diverse backgrounds and underserved communities valuable mentorship and exhibition opportunities, including learning from the curatorial staff about the creation and interpretation of exhibitions and arts programming and working with artists and arts professionals to define career paths over the course of the program. Van Lier Fellows participate in the Winter Workspace Program and will receive a commission to create a solo project in the Sunroom Project Space.
New guidelines and deadline will be posted in fall 2013.
Curators identify artists for Glyndor Gallery, the Winter Workspace Program and generated@wavehill in many different ways. Artists may submit their work for consideration for future opportunities through the online application. Curators review submissions and contact all artists within three months of the deadline.
Two or three thematic group exhibitions are curated for the spring, summer and fall in Wave Hill’s Glyndor House. Exhibitions generally combine painting, sculpture, works on paper, installation, photography and some video. Artworks are borrowed or new works are created for the exhibitions. The gallery occupies three spacious rooms and other ancillary spaces on the main floor of this Georgian Revival house. The rooms are flexible with excellent natural light, but cannot be fully darkened. During 2014 we will continue with cultural programming that celebrates previous residents of Wave Hill including William Henry Appelton, Theodore Roosevelt, Arturo Toscanini, and Mark Twain. This will include readings, lectures, concerts and exhibitions in Glyndor Gallery and Wave Hill House. Other themes are being developed for 2015 that celebrate Wave Hill’s 50th Anniversary.
Winter Workspace Program
From January to March, the galleries are turned over to artists to use as workspace for six week sessions. We encourage artists who are interested in studying our plant collection and responding to the natural setting. Artists have an opportunity to share their practice with visitors through participatory workshops. This program is open to artists living in New York State and offers workspace, not living space. A nomination process is used to select artists for this program that includes artists who submit through General Opportunities.
Curators invite an artist to create a temporal project on the grounds through this program.
