India Street Mural Project artist Eve Biddle is a founder The Wassaic Project, a creative space in Wassaic, New York and we’d like to congratulate the recent story in New York Times! You can read an excerpt below and the whole article here.
“Ms. Biddle, who commutes frequently from her apartment in Brooklyn to Wassaic in a Honda Civic decorated with a wrap-around decal of an octopus eating a steak, said she and the other co-founders of the project hope to keep the space, which is nonprofit, open for several years, to attract emerging and more established artists from around the world. They also hope to keep admission free (although they do ask for donations).
While Wassaic is a long way from becoming the next Marfa or Dia:Beacon, it offers a retreat from commercial pressures and art-world politics that is rare anywhere near New York City, Ms. Biddle said, and a space that is a world of its own even by the standards of industrial art galleries.
“About the only thing we can’t offer,” she added, “is white walls.”
