The Oracle of Amplitude: Heather Hart
On View: May 2, 2019 - January 20, 2020

Interdisciplinary artist Heather Hart brings to Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling the newest iteration of her interactive installation series of rooftop Oracles. The Museum presents The Oracle of Amplitude, an independent rooftop, similar to the Artist’s own gabled roof from childhood removed from its house and edging its way into the gallery floor. Hart invites visitors to interact with the life-sized roof to explore, to look, to talk, and to listen. Over the course of the exhibition, the roof will be further activated with live performances and storytelling sessions. The Oracle of Amplitude is Hart’s ninth site-specific installation in this series and the first to be installed in Manhattan.
