Wave Hill to Reopen to Public Thursday, July 30
Wave Hill will reopen to the public on Thursday, July 30, 2020, with required pre-registration, with reduced hours and fewer visitors. Its reopening comes after closing to the public four months ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Visiting Wave Hill once it reopens July 30 will feel a little unusual during this first phase of the garden’s reopening.
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. Originally scheduled as an exhibition that would open at Wave Hill in early April, Eco-Urgency has been reimagined as a virtual experience. Planning for the exhibition took place as Covid-19 was first reported and then started to spread. The parallels between the ecological issues addressed with the crisis of the global pandemic, economic crisis and the ensuing recognition of systemic racism in our society, creates a moment of urgency to present this work.
