  • Wassaic Project's summer festival features innovative and experimental visual art, music, and dance.

Founded in 2008, the Wassaic Project is a nonprofit organization that creates and promotes fluid, contemporary visual and performing arts. The project's founding program is its summer festival, a free annual event that features innovative and experimental visual art, music, and dance. Taking a nonconformist approach to art and its presentation, the festival breaks free of traditional white-walled galleries to host exhibitions in a grain elevator, an 1850s hotel, a barn, and the hamlet's historic train station. This year, the festival returns for its seventh summer, from August 1 to August 3. As always, participants are encouraged to camp out on the Wassaic Project's campus and experience a weekend of communal, alternative art. Enjoy the festival and additional summer programs such as exhibitions and film screenings at the Maxon Mills, Wassaic. (347) 815-0783; Wassaicproject.org.
