Frequently asked questions

Am I required to attend the festival?

Short answer: No, not required.

Long answer: Our summer festivals are community events, and we think it’s important for our artists to make it a priority to be a part of that community. To that end, we give preference to artists who will attend the festival. If you are unable to attend the festival, please state why in your proposal.

What does the Summer Exhibition space look like?

The exhibition is housed in Maxon Mills, a historic grain elevator in the heart of Wassaic. It’s not a traditional gallery space, so it presents unique challenges and opportunities when installing artwork (including dust and humidity).

What is the Summer Festival program?

We curate a program of performance and temporary installation for our Summer Festival, the first weekend in August — August 4 – August 6, 2017. The Wassaic Project Summer Festival is a free, annual celebration of art, music, dance, and community, and attracts over 4,000 visitors a year.

What is the Summer Exhibition?

Our annual Summer Exhibition is up from May 20 through mid-September and open to the public every weekend (including the weekend of our Summer Festival). The exhibition includes the work of roughly 80 emerging artists, who have either participated in the Wassaic Artist Residency Program or have applied through our Open Call. The exhibition is housed in Maxon Mills, an historic grain elevator in the heart of Wassaic. View images of our 2016 Summer Exhibition here.
