After a two-year-long renovation, Wave Hill celebrated the reopening of its historic house with a free family fete on Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, July 7. Visitors toured the historic mansion, explored the expansive gardens, listened to live music by the folksy Mary Courtney and Morning Star, and participated in a collaborative tapsetry-making project. Kids also made and decorated adorable paper pineapple hats in the revamped Kerlin Learning Center, located inside the Wave Hll House. (Going forward, the institution's popular Family Art Projects, including the upcoming My Green Heaven, will take place in this space.)
