AVIFAUNA: INTERPLAY OF BIRDS + HABITAT
April 27 – June 24
New York City provides a wide array of habitats for birds. Numerous species of birds migrate along the Hudson or make Wave Hill’s gardens and woodlands their home. The artworks in this exhibition delve into the relationship between birds and their habitats—from the way changes in natural and built environments affect migration patterns to the role birds play in propagating plants.
Visitors can contemplate this dynamic interplay by exploring the gallery and observing avian activity on the grounds. Works in the show will include photography, video, artist books, wall painting, installation, drawing and sound. Artists include Tatiana Arocha, Tanya Chaly, Marna Chester, Nina Katchadourian, Paula McCartney, Jeff Mertz, Peter Morgan, Sarah Nicholls, James Prosek, Jenna Spevack and Fred Tomaselli.
$4 Students and Seniors 65+
More details will be sent to attending members a few days before the event. Guests are welcome.
Kindly RSVP to Laura by Thursday, May 17th.
