The Wassaic Project Summer Festival is a FREE, annual, multi-disciplinary celebration of art, music, and community in the hamlet of Wassaic, NY. This year’s festival will feature over 100 artists, 23 bands, poetry readings, dance performances, film screenings and much more.
Housed in and around historic buildings in Wassaic, New York, The Wassaic Project’s summer festival escapes the white walls of traditional art spaces and focuses on site-sensitive installations and performances. As visitors climb through the vertical bins of a historic wooden skyscraper, they will explore the work of over 80 emerging contemporary artists, whose bold and intricate installations, paintings, sculptures and videos respond beautifully to the unique architecture that houses them.
The 2011 summer festival offers a unique weekend-long opportunity for the general public, as well as artists of all mediums, to come together, exchange ideas, learn new things, and engage in a thriving arts community.
The Summer Festival will run August 5-7, 2011. Admission is FREE to the public.
