The Wassaic Project
Thinking of taking that last weekend trip out of the city before summer officially ends?
Way up in Wassaic, NY (well not so way up) you’ll find The Wassaic Project, an artist-run sustainable, multidisciplinary arts organization that, in their words, “focuses on community engagement and facilitates artists and participants to exhibit, discuss, and connect with art, each other, our unique site, and the surrounding area.”
Built in a refurbished mill and animal auction house, and hoping to reinvigorate the historic buildings in Wassaic, the Project holds an annual summer festival, a year-round artist residency, studio visits/critiques for artists involved with the organization by guest curators and visiting artists, artist workshops with community members, published catalogs, and fundraising exhibitions in Wassaic and New York City.
Open on Saturday & Sunday, from 11am – 5pm, their Summer Exhibition closes after this upcoming weekend, so it’s your last chance, and it’s well worth the drive!
