This past weekend was a special treat for us art lovers who did not have to be stuck in the city’s sweltering heat to see art.  The Wassaic Project’s Summer Festival – with an edge of hippy-folkness  – is much more than just a hippy fest. The founders Eve Biddle, Elan Bogarin and Bowie Zunino are all artists who are based in New York City. They understand how the art world works here and so this is somewhat of a reform to that system. Their mission is simple and straightforward: to revive this hamlet sleepy town with good art, and bring people together to have a good time for the sake of art. And all of the shows are free!  Here’s a photo recap of the event, more words to come after some sleep replenishment.

Wassaic Projects:
Thursday – Sunday 12pm – 6pm
