The Sunroom Project Space supports Wave Hill’s dedication to nurturing creativity and experimentation—both in the gardens and in the gallery. It was initiated in 2007 to offer New York-area emerging artists the unique opportunity to develop new work as solo exhibitions. Artists create projects in a distinctive context that connects the visitor to our landscape, gardens and history.
Over the years, dozens of artists have transformed the Sunroom Space, and undergone a transformation of their own. We regularly reach out to them, documenting what inspired their Sunroom work, and how the Sunroom Project shaped them as artists.
Each year, 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, providing an engaging setting for artists to contemplate, explore and ultimately transform the gallery using various materials and techniques.

"Call & Response" focuses on the developing concept of site-specificity as it relates to the projects that have been exhibited in Wave Hill’s Sunroom Project Space, an annex of Glyndor Gallery. The entire Glyndor Gallery will be given over to this exhibition, presented in honor of the tenth anniversary of the Sunroom Project Space.
