Location: Bronx, New York
Mission: Wave Hill’s Winter Workspace program offers workspaces to artists to encourage experimentation, the development of new work or pursuit of a project using the exceptional garden and woodland settings as a source conducive to the creative process. Through the program, artists can also pursue public engagement through workshops and open studios. A total of 12 artists participate, including two Van Lier Visual Artist Fellows, split up into two sessions with six artists in each.
The residency is a way to open our site to artists and to cultivate an ongoing relationship with them. Artwork created will not necessarily be exhibited, but future opportunities for programs, workshops, readings, performances and exhibitions might be pursued.
