Wave Hill


All Ages


Event description: As was the practice during the era of the Underground Railroad, draw a secret map of the places you want to go. In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King - and with a nod toward traditional African American quilts - transfer the maps to muslin and decorate them with cloth, yarn, and felt to embellish your own personal dream of freedom. Admission to the grounds is free until 12pm.

Address: West 249th Street and Independence Avenue
