Artists are at the core of what we do.

Whether showcasing work in our exhibitions, offering room to experiment through our residency program, hosting guest lecturers, or providing a stage at our festivals, we're all about lifting up the best emerging contemporary artists, performers, writers, and filmmakers.

Community matters.

Housed in historic buildings in upstate New York, our residency program offers artists a community where they can explore and expand their practices.

Our residents are emerging contemporary artists, filmmakers, writers, and everything in between. They support each other, and we support them with visiting artist lectures, monthly artist presentations, studio visits, and 24-hour access to private studio spaces.

It all feeds back into our community. We open our studios at the end of each month. We keep all our visiting artist lectures open to the public. And during their time here, residents work for a few hours per month alongside Wassaic Project staff members. It’s a residency of and for Wassaic.

Bring the family along.

Our Family Residency, offered from December through March, lets parents spend 1 to 8 weeks embedded in our Winter Residency. Same studio space, same amenities, same everything.

More than white walls.

Our exhibitions live in the Maxon Mills, a refurbished 1950's grain elevator in the heart of town. Some sprawl throughout all seven floors, while others take just one floor and transform it into a new world. And all of them feature the best emerging contemporary artists.
