Wassaic Project


The Wassaic Artist Residency exists to provide a genuine and intimate context for art making. We hope to strengthen local community by increasing social and cultural capital through inspiration, creation and access to contemporary visual and performing art.

The Wassaic Project and the Wassaic Artist Residency Program are two separate but closely connected organizations that offer complementary programming and are co-located at the Maxon Mills, Luther Barn and surrounding facilities, in Wassaic, NY. The Wassaic Project produces exhibitions, a summer festival and an arts education program; the Wassaic Artist Residency Program is a competitive residency program that brings artists and writers into the hamlet of Wassaic to live and work for periods of 1 – 6 months.

Artist-in-residence are selected based on our commitment to the highest quality work. The Residency program provides live and work spaces, an extensive professional development program and a community of fellow artists. Visiting critics visit and speak with artists-in-residence each month, and selected artists participate in the Summer Exhibition with the Wassaic Project. Education Fellowships are awarded to outstanding artists-in-residence to work with the Wassaic Project Education Program leading classes in our local public high school as well as in the exhibition space.
