Louis Bauer
Nature into Art, the Gardens of Wave Hill by Tom Christopher

Louis Bauer began his work as the third Director of Horticulture at Wave Hill, just before the institution marked its 50th year as one of the city’s cultural institutions. This presented an opportunity to look back at how it evolved and what sets it apart from the other green spaces and gardens in New York City.

The result was a book, Nature Into Art: The Gardens of Wave Hill by Tom Christopher, that aligned with the intention of the first gardeners. It offers some horticultural advice and inspires curiosity about plants in a setting with a domestic scale and which puts visitors at ease.

For nearly two decades, Louis Bauer has dedicated himself to Wave Hill, first arriving in 1994 to work under Marco Polo Stufano, and returning in 2014 as Director of Horticulture. He epitomizes the distinctive style of gardening Wave Hill is known for—intimate, adventurous and plants first! Under Louis’ inspired leadership, Wave Hill remains at the forefront of American horticulture; his impact will last long into the future.
