Theodore Roosevelt, who was as much a naturalist as he was a politician, lived for a time at Wave Hill House, now a public garden and cultural center in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. Inspired by his enthusiasm for specimen discovery and collection, Wave Hill presents “Recapturing the Scenic Wilds” (Sept. 6 through Dec. 7), in which nine artists offer modern twists on nature displays that explore our complex relationship with the Great Outdoors. If you’ve never been there, Wave Hill is an irresistible combo of beautiful setting (overlooking the Hudson River and the Palisades), provocative exhibits and imaginative programming.
