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.

Each week, Wave Hill educators share some of their favorite nature stories. These stories—classics and more—will come to life through interactive readings, sing-alongs and puppets. Programs are held outdoors in good weather; in inclement weather we will meet in Wave Hill House. Ideal for children ages 3 to 6 with their adult companions.

As any gardener will tell you, what you sow is not always what you reap. This week, listen to stories and sing songs about unexpected harvests, unintentional gardens and surprise garden visitors. Our books this week will be:

  • How Groundhog’s Garden Grew by Lynne Cherry
  • Hare and the Big Green Lawn by Katharine Crawford Robey
  • Mossy by Jan Brett

Free with admission to the grounds.

Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form that has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, music, and acrobatics. Some of capoeira’s benefits include strength, flexibility, stamina, overall fitness and confidence. Benefits of capoeira for kids include promoting social interaction and sense of belonging, building confidence, discipline and self esteem, promoting a healthy lifestyle so children become active, and healthy, and develop cultural awareness and tolerance. Wear comfortable clothing.

Capoeira was developed in Brazil, but its history extends to Africa and tribes from Angola. Slaves living on Brazilian Plantations who weren’t allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing, and the rhythms of primitive instruments.

This week’s Lost Inwood On the Back Porch will be a program illustrating how Inwood has been portrayed on maps over the past four hundred years.

Making use of beautiful high-definition projections, we’ll sample works of early explorers from the 1600s, soldiers from the 1700s, city surveyors and land speculators from the 1800s, archaeologists of the early 1900s, and even contemporary works.

We’ll also see the Inwood Time Machine, our animation overlay process which enables the viewer to literally fly above Inwood as the centuries pass. Hold on to your hats!

We’ll have the opportunity to peruse two of the rarest and most beautiful maps ever made of our neighborhood; a sampling of Randel’s 1819 Farm survey plates and the magnificent Historical Map of Inwood by Reginald Pelham Bolton. Made in 1906 and never published, Bolton’s multilayered magnum opus has rarely been seen.

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.
