The Big High Hills are Brooklyn's very own bluegrass inspired psych rock swamp extravaganza! The trio features Colin O'Con singing and playing guitar, Steve Pauley picking the banjo and Tom Kotik (Art Omi: Artists, 2001) thumping on the electric bass.

Whether careening through high potency pickin’ tunes or crooning sensitive love ballads, Big High Hills brings on the funky foot stomping roots vibe that gets everyone down with the groove!  

Colin O'Con: guitar, voice
Steve Pauley: banjo
Tom Kotik: bass guitar

Enjoy toe-taping music, bluegrass-inspired light fare, and hard cider from Nine Pin Cider! Tom Kotik’s residency with Art Omi: Artists was in 2001. It was the tenth anniversary of Art Omi and the first year with Ruth Adams as Director!

Join us on Saturday mornings for this popular workshop for young artists ages 5 - 12! Based on a weekly theme and inspired by artworks in The Fields, Architecture, and the Visitors Center Gallery, each workshop includes an outdoor adventure and a hands-on artmaking activity. Led by teaching artists, children are divided into two groups by age and participate in developmentally appropriate projects that encourage curiosity, experimentation, and creative thinking through a variety of materials and experiences.
