f. is for frank is thrilled to be a part of the upcoming Wassaic Project Summer Festival, taking place August 5-7th, in Wassaic, New York. A fantastic and truly innovative organization, the Wassaic Project promotes the arts, as well as a sense of community among artists, through initiatives such as their year-round artist residency and an annual summer festival. According to their website, "The Wassaic Project is an artist-run sustainable, multidisciplinary arts organization that focuses on community engagement and facilitates artists and participants to exhibit, discuss, and connect with art, each other, our unique site, and the surrounding area." This mission statement reflects an exciting organization whose goals are truly worthwhile, and we are very happy to be collaborating with them.
