Wave Hill Presents Weekly, Virtual Programs for Eco-Urgency Exhibition

This summer, Wave Hill, a public garden and cultural center in the Bronx, presents a Eco-Urgency: Artists Make the Case, a weekly series of ​screenings, conversations with artists, curators and scientists, nature walks, foraging tips, all focused on critical issues affecting ecosystems and biodiversity​.
