Wave Hill Announces 2021 Exhibition Season

Wave Hill, a public garden and cultural center in the Bronx, is pleased to announce its 2021 exhibition season. This year, Wave Hill’s exhibitions stem from a spirit of collaboration. The curatorial team is working with artists and outside educational institutions to present work that reflects the interconnections between the creative process and the inspiration of nature. Beginning in May, Glyndor Gallery will be showcasing The Shadow of the Sun, featuring the work of Ross Bleckner and Zachari Logan. Starting in August, Eco-Urgency: Artists Make the Case, an ecologically-themed exhibition in partnership with Lehman College Art Gallery, also in the Bronx, will be on view in Glyndor Gallery. Concurrently, from May to December, Wave Hill will present solo shows by seven emerging artists commissioned to create site-specific installations in the gallery’s Sunroom Project Space. Many of the projects, postponed a year due to the pandemic, honor our commitments to the artists who created them.
