Virtual Wave Hill


 It's been so great to have visitors back in the gardens. For those who haven't visited yet, reserve a ticket here. Weekly reservations open Monday, and the previous Friday for Wave Hill Members. And familiarize yourself with our safety guidelines before you go! To stay connected to Wave Hill virtually, check out what's new this week with our virtual programs:

Saturday, August 22, 10AM
“Throw it away” they say. And we say, “where is this place, ‘away?’” It’s been 100 years since women were given the right to vote in the United States, and since then women continue to shift culture in remarkable ways. Join Family Art Project as we look forward and beyond borders to learn from ecofeminism and women like Isatou Ceesay and Wangari Maathai who have used the resources around them to claim their place on earth and bring love and care to the land. Create bags to carry your own ecofeminist toolkit from upcycled materials that would otherwise be thrown ‘away’.

Sundays, through November 8, 9:30AM-10:00AM
Join mindful outdoor guide Cindy Olsen or dosha healer Sara Hart for the healing practice of “sit spot” nature meditation. This experience is open to all who wish to learn simple meditation activities, nature lovers or anyone with an ongoing practice. Your “sit spot” can be anywhere—outdoors in your favorite spot, or your favorite spot at home.

This event is brought to you digitally—and onsite, we hope, one day this fall—as we move through Wave Hill’s planned phases of reopening.

Tuesday, August 25, NOON
Join us for our final Eco-Urgency feature! Artist Alison Moritsugu discusses two of her paintings, We are the ash (Remnant) and We are the ash (Vestige), with Curator, Eileen Jeng Lynch. 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 some of 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.

HOURS: Special restricted hours as New York City recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic: NOON–5:30PM, Thursday–Sunday.
