Wassaic Project Summer Festival Showcases Emerging Artists
August 3, starting at noon, at the Luther Barn Field, in Wassaic.
Parijat Desai Dance Company will be performing
For the past 10 years, the Wassaic Project Summer Festival has showcased the talents of emerging visual artists, musicians, dancers, filmmakers and other creative artists. The 11th annual festival will take place August 3, starting at noon, at the Luther Barn Field, in Wassaic.
As always, the event will be free and will feature art of every medium. In addition to music, dance and film, visitors can enjoy artist talks, performances, readings and games. The festival’s summer exhibition, Ad Astra Per Aspera, will be open all day, as will the Art Nest, a free artmaking space for kids.
The Wassaic Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, uses art and arts education to foster positive social change. Its goal is to “nurture connections between our artists and our neighbors, facilitating a mutual broadening of perspectives and respect across economic and cultural boundaries.”
The festival depends on and is looking for volunteers. Anyone who signs up to help will get a free T-shirt and free camping on Saturday night. (Only volunteers are allowed to camp.)
Cost: Free. Location: Luther Barn Field, 17 Furnace Bank Rd., Wassaic, NY. For more info, visit WassaicProject.org.
