WAVE HILL EVENTS

Wave Hill is all about connecting people with nature, so residents are invited to join its “Drawn to Nature” weekend. Centered around the spring exhibition in Glyndor Gallery—drawings by seven contemporary artists—it invites all to get inspired by the early spring landscape. And it’s a Target Free weekend, which translates to free admission and free programs all day, both days.
