July 10th - 22nd, 2016
The second residency in 2016 will be held by artist team Valerie Molnar & Matt Spahr, both currently living in Richmond, Virginia. During their time at Wave Pool they will transform the gallery into a plant rehabilitation center with multiple pop up greenhouses. Visitors will be encouraged to bring plants in for “drop-off” for as long as they’d like for their plants to receive specialized care. The plants will be groomed, repotted, fed, and enjoy incentive and comforts for optimal happiness such as appropriate light and humidity zones, tesla healing plates, disco lights for sunset, and twelve hours of plant appropriate music. Additional programming in the form of workshops pulled from the community would meter the ongoing rehabilitation.
August 1st - 21st, 2016
