Sunroom Project Space 2017
April 08 - August 27, 2017
Wave Hill commissions a diverse group of emerging New York-area artists to create a new body of work or site-specific project for a solo exhibition in the Sunroom Project Space. Sonya Blesofsky, Sindy Butz, Borinquen Gallo, Jan Munand David Rios Ferreirawere selected as this year’s Sunroom artists.
The Sunroom provides an engaging setting for artists to contemplate, explore and ultimately transform the gallery using various materials and techniques. The five 2017 artists represent a variety of approaches, including projects that relate to Wave Hill’s history and architecture; engage with our community by working with participants in our public education programs; and investigate the history of horticulture and botany in unique ways. Each artist participates in a Meet the Artist public program, an artist talk moderated by a guest curator or arts professional.
