Salute to the Bees
Our annual Honey Weekend moves online this year to celebrate the hard-working pollinators in our yards, gardens and natural areas. This week, beekeeper, educator and candlemaker Pam Golben shows us beeswax candle-making demonstrations. Find the video on our website this Friday.
We're thrilled to announce the reopening of Glyndor Gallery to the public with the 23rd Annual International in collaboration with the American Society for Botanical Artists. The artworks on view collectively speak to nature’s resiliency and celebrate botanical art amidst the rich diversity of plants in Wave Hill’s gardens. The jurors, Ken Druse, garden lecturer, author and photographer; Karen Kluglein, botanical artist and instructor, and Eileen Jeng Lynch, Curator of Visual Arts at Wave Hill, have selected an outstanding group that includes a mix of seasoned of 46 artists. To enable a broader reach beyond the gallery, virtual programs will be hosted through Wave Hill’s Branching Out initiative. Check wavehill.org for dates, registration and additional information.
NO FAMILY ART PROJECT THIS WEEK
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.
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.
