Artists hold block party for community
WASSAIC — Coming up at the tail end of August, the hamlet of Wassaic was brimming with summer entertainment as The Wassaic Project artists collaborative hosted its second Block Party of the season on Saturday, Aug. 28.
The party was held at the seven-story Maxon Mills building in support of The Wassaic Project’s 2021 Exhibition, “If You Lived Here, You’d Be Here By Now.” The first block party was held on July 24.
From noon to 8 p.m., the party offered extended gallery hours at Maxon Mills and featured videos at Gridley Chapel.
Throughout the day, The Wassaic Project offered a full range of festivities for people of all ages and interests, from a Collage & Cocktails program at The Lantern and a scavenger hunt for children to an exhibition tour with artists talks and live dance performances on the Gridley Chapel lawn.
The night came to a vibrant end with live music at The Lantern by Pangari and the Socialites and outdoor videos projected onto the exterior walls of Maxon Mills.
