Join Artist Alison Moritsugu on a studio visit as she discusses two of her paintings, We are the ash (Remnant) and We are the ash (Vestige), with Eileen Jeng Lynch, Wave Hill’s Curator. Both paintings were made in response to the presence of the invasive emerald ash borer, an insect destroying North America’s ash tree forests. They will also explore the linguistic and logistical parallels between the invasive ash borer and the current pandemic.
A 28-acre public garden and cultural center overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades, Wave Hill’s mission is to celebrate the artistry and legacy of its gardens and landscape, to preserve its magnificent views, and to explore human connections to the natural world through programs in horticulture, education and the arts.
