    More expected on Manhattan's Lower East Side than in tranquil Wassaic,  the Wassaic Project Summer Festival runs August 13th - August 16th and showcases the work of 75 artists, in addition to offering  film screenings and musical performances.

    A chance to see some great art and music acts, the festival takes place in a truly unusual venue.  A former grain and feed elevator has been restored and transformed into an art gallery, and a nearby barn, the former home of a livestock auction, serves as the venue for film screenings. The project is the work of a group of New York artists who dreamed of turning these long-ignored barn buildings into a sprawling exhibition site for contemporary art.

    For more information on the festival, visit the Wassaic Project Website. You can also read more about the project in this recent article in the New York Times.
