After much anticipation, Summer
Evenings at Wave Hill are back to
usher in the summer season. Sunset
Wednesdays offer an inspiring mix of
jazz, world, folk, Latin and Caribbean
artists for seven consecutive Wednesdays.
Join in to kick off this garden
‘lawn party’’on Wednesday, June 26
with picnics on the grass and live,
outdoor jams. First up, Bombay Rickey’s
unique 1960s soundscapes which
blend world genres with Bollywood,
Surf Rock and Opera. In August, they
will introduce Twilight in the Garden
on Thursdays—the second half of our
Summer Evenings—with stargazing,
a full moon nature walk and more serene
time in the garden—plus an allnew
Sonic Experience series. More
details to come!
Also coming up at the end of June,
a meet-the-artists talk with artists
Jia Sung and Christina Yuna Ko. Outdoor
Yoga in the Garden also continues
through the end of July.

a human right. Use the Japanese art
of suminagashi and orizome to explore
techniques in marbling and dyeing.
Lightly touch the water’s surface

ripples and waves. Think about how
you’d like to make waves and ripples

to explore narratives about contested
space that draw on personal and cultural
touch points in their immersive
installations. In the Sunroom, Amir
Hariri creates sculptural installations
constructed of wood, brick and
other building materials—along with
a wall drawing—that connect to his
architectural research to the Bronx
and Wave Hill. In the Sun Porch, Geoffrey
Owen Miller suspends transparent,
upside down sculptures of fl ora
and fauna—inspired by Wave Hill—
from the ceiling over sheets of blackmirrored
glass. Visitors see prismatic

Wednesday, June 26: Sunset
Wednesday: Bombay Rickey: Praised
as “a true treat for the adventurous
ear” (Time Out New York), Bombay
Rickey might be the soundtrack to a
Bollywood Noir from the 1960s or a
Spaghetti Western that never existed.
The fi ve-piece band defi es easy categorization,
with a unique sound evocative
of cinematic soundscapes. Performing
covers and original music
that borrow equally from the worlds
of Surf Rock, Cumbia, Spaghetti Western
and Bollywood, and balanced out
with a coloratura homage to Yma Sumac,
Bombay Ricky’s music is complex
but playful, danceable and intellectual
and unlike anything you’ve
ever heard. Free with admission to
the grounds. Special evening admission
starts at 4PM. $12 general adult
admission; $8 student and seniors
65+; $6 children ages six+. Purchase
admission online by 4pm day of event
and save $2. Free to Wave Hill Members
and children under age six. No
guest passes or reciprocal admission
accepted. On the Grounds, 7 p.m.
