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.

Dunes, Drawing and Dendrology is a new summer program, a thematic series of nature walks, talks, and art workshops, designed to encompass the various natural elements of Conference House Park.

Conference House Park is home to many diverse and unique plant and tree communities within its 265 acres. The communities range from tall maturing forest stands, young groves, open fields, pocket-forested wetlands, and wet woods. The park contains a rare maritime Northern Hackberry forest (due to high calcium levels from the high number of discarded oyster shells in the soil). There are many tree species at the southern and northern most portion of their growing range—true 'Mason-Dixon' line for trees species.

This educational Walk and Talk is a family-friendly program designed to increase the appreciation and understanding of the numerous tree and plant species found within the various forest types in the park.

Each week, Wave Hill educators share some of their favorite nature tales. These stories—classics and more—come to life through interactive readings, sing-alongs and puppetry. This week, meet a very grumpy goat, a pig who says “ribbit” and a little bird who thinks an airplane might just be her mother. Laugh along with these comedic tales, and then join in as we sing some of our favorite nonsense songs. This week we read Are You My Mother! by P. D. Eastman, Grumpy Goat by Brett Helquist and Ribbit! by Rodrigo Folgueira.

Programs are held outdoors in good weather; in Wave Hill House in inclement weather. Ideal for children ages three to six with an adult.
