Located along the esplanade leading up to the recently opened High Bridge, Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair is a group exhibition of nine artists’ public artworks. In a frantic world, finding a chair can be almost impossible and settling comfortably into one can be an enormous satisfaction. Sitting in the wrong seat can cause anxiety and an even pain. Exhibiting artists Dan Bergman, Allan Cyprys, Robert Dell, Gregoire Ferland, Esther Grillo, Christina Jorge, Siena Gillann Porta, Herb Rosenberg and Chuck von Schmidt respond imaginatively to the notion of sitting or using a chair. Oh Sit! is framed as an imperative, a command—a way of asking the viewer to look and really consider the concept “chair” both objectively and subjectively.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their work outs, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions.

Learn to Ride—Adults is a free class for adults and mature teens who are ready to ride. Doesn’t matter if you’re 18 or 80, we’ll get you rolling in no time. With our safe, easy, effective method, Learn to Ride students learn how to balance, pedal, start, stop, and steer a bike, as well as adjust a helmet for proper fit. Most people learn to ride in one session, but even if they don’t, they’ll leave equipped with an easy, low-stress way to teach themselves—or, they can join us for another free class!

Our Learn to Ride classes start you moving on a bike without pedals or training wheels so you can learn to balance the bike. Once you can get your bike to glide (continue to roll with your feet off the ground) and can control the bike with the handlebars and brakes, the pedals are added and you can use your feet to pedal the bike and keep it rolling.

During this artist talk, Holly Veselka and aricoco each discuss their creative process and the concepts behind their solo projects.

In the Sunroom, Veselka manipulates and re-contextualizes cultural artifacts, including diagrams, illustrations, charts, and maps. She prints antiquated images, as envisioned by such 19th-century scientists, philosophers, and authors as Claude Ruggieri and Jules Verne, onto fabrics to create sculptural objects.

Artist aricoco uses recycled fabrics to weave garments for protection and to create environments for habitation. In the Sun Porch, she makes outfits and headgear that represent an insect’s life cycle in an environment resembling a carnivorous garden. Inhabiting the garden are fantastical bugs, which must develop new skills to adapt to hostile surroundings.

This event is free with admission to the grounds.
