Wave Hill is all about connecting people with nature, so a weekend like “Drawn to Nature”, highlighted below, is, well, a natural. Centered around the spring exhibition in Glyndor Gallery—drawings by seven contemporary artists—it invites visitors to get inspired by the early spring landscape. And it’s a Target Free weekend, which translates to free admission and free programs all day, both days.
