About Us
The Wassaic Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, uses art and arts education to foster positive social change. We nurture connections between our artists and our neighbors facilitating a mutual broadening of perspectives and respect across economic and cultural boundaries.

The Haunted Mill Open Call
The Wassaic Project seeks artists to participate in the Haunted Mill from Friday, October 25th through Sunday, October 27th, 2024. The Haunted Mill is our annual Halloween event in the hamlet of Wassaic. This year we are accepting a few types of proposals: site-specific installations for Maxon Mills, outdoor installations, and performances. We will prioritize interactive and immersive proposals. We want to see your haunted games, your creepy trick or treat stations, and all of the spooky experiences you dream up.

For site-specific installations in Maxon Mills and outdoor installations:
Artists will have complete creative control over their installation, as long as they keep their work PG-13. We want artists who are excited to participate and get weird, as well as artists who are self-directed and independent with their projects and vision. Wassaic Project offers housing in one of our residency houses for 1 – 3 weeks between September 30 and October 26, 2024, private studio space in Maxon Mills, additional studio space in Luther Barn, and full access to our wood shop and print shop. We will offer a modest honorarium to participating artists and artistic teams.

For performances:
Please explain how the piece will look or function. If your work is time-based or has video documentation, you may also link to media from YouTube, Vimeo, or SoundCloud.

Application Requirements:
Contact information
1–10 work samples (5 or more images of completed works and and 1-5 sketches, mock-ups, or works in progress of what you’re thinking about for your installation)
CV (PDF, 2 pages maximum)
$25 application fee

Application Deadline: Monday, May 6, midnight EST
