SUN, MARCH 20    WINTER WORKSPACE WORKSHOP: WALKING MINDFULLY
Each winter, Wave Hill opens Glyndor Gallery as workspace for New York-area artists, giving them the unique opportunity to explore the winter landscape as a source of inspiration. Artists share aspects of their practice with the public through hands-on workshops. Workshops begin in Glyndor Gallery with an introduction to the artist’s work, then continue in the Ecology Building or Wave Hill House for the creative activity. During the Winter Workspace, Sindy Butz will continue research on two video projects, one that is focused on the Palisades and the other on 11th century German nun St. Hildegard von Bingen and her medicinal study of rocks and botanicals. Today’s workshop will encourage the examination of two very different histories and traditions, providing participants with the opportunity to learn about Saint Hildegard of Bingen, and butoh, a meditative Japanese dance form that involves very slow, intense movements. Learn more about butoh and practice guided imagery and meditative movement techniques that Sindy Butz uses in her own art performances and training. In celebration of the vernal equinox, end a cold winter with joy and make the transition into spring with consciousness, then enjoy a cup of tea from a recipe inspired by Saint Hildegard. Visitors aged 12 and over are welcome with an adult. Newcomers and practicing artists alike are welcome. $25/$15 Wave HillMembers, includes admission to the grounds. Unless otherwise noted, art materials are provided. Advance registration recommended, online at wavehill.org or onsite at the Perkins Visitor Center.
