Returning to the Source was originally on view in Wave Hill House from January 19 to March 29, 2020. Returning to the Source closed early, on March 18, due to the outbreak of COVID-19. You can visit this show virtually by viewing this catalogue that includes all the artwork in the exhibition.
Returning to the Source celebrates ten years of Wave Hill’s Winter Workspace Program and features 30 artists who capture the spirit of the Workspace. The Winter Workspace provides artists with unique opportunities to expand their practices within the context of the garden and work with Wave Hill’s living collection, consult with staff across departments, as well as participate in public-facing programs. While some of the works on view were created during the Workspace, other artworks were completed after the residency and reflect the long-lasting impact of the Workspace on each artist’s practice.
