This exhibition and programming will continue Wave Hill’s efforts to examine the ways artists engage in ecological projects that present a call to action. The exhibition documents environmental art that explores persistent problems throughout New York City, including The Point’s South Bronx Resiliency Arts Fellowship, Lillian Ball’s WATERWASH and Jan Mun’s residency with the New York Hall of Science, among others. Artists are creating works to engage visitors in the gallery. In conjunction with the exhibition, Wave Hill will host discussions, workshops, demonstrations and performances, in partnership with other organizations and artists, will be held on Thursday evenings this summer.

Support for the Visual Arts Program is provided by Lily Auchincloss Foundation, Inc., Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, New York Community Trust Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, and by the Cathy and Stephen Weinroth Commissioning Fund for the Arts.
