Sarah Sandman, social engagement designer and coordinator of decorations, has hunted down a train model of the Maxon Mills made by model builder, Ed Steinberg. Inspired by it’s unique architecture on a country drive on Route 22 in 1992, Ed meticulously recreated the structure years before The Wassaic Project occupation. Along with displaying this historic artifact, Sandman is recreating another model as a block puzzle for benefit participants to build together.
Jen Catron and Paul Outlaw will recreate their mobile bar project and serve drinks to guests moving throughout the space. Disorientalism, an ongoing collaboration between artists Katherine Behar and Marianne M. Kim, will serve up a brand new durational performance piece incorporating their 3D lenticular print I’se in Town Honey from the ReadyMix installation.
WASSAIC PROJECT EDITIONS
Inaugural Edition Available NOW!

The Wassaic Project presents our inaugural edition: a silk print by Maximilian Bode. The Wassaic Project Editions Series will commission and produce limited editions of Wassaic Artist’s works. Maximilian’s print was unveiled last Thursday night to much acclaim and there are still limited prints available.
This unique silkscreen print was made in the Wassaic Project print shop in collaboration with our Print Fellow Breanne Trammell and Print Intern Douglas Eberhardt. Sales of this benefit print will go directly to help fund our Summer Exhibition program, which showcases over 100 artists annually in Wassaic. Maximilian will receive 20% of all sales.
Maximiliam Bode’s Untitled is part of the artist’s ongoing investigation of the natural world in which he creates “impossible” landscapes that mix natural forms with surreal textures and colors. For the Wassaic Project Benefit print, the resulting image is illustrative and playful, belying the depiction of violent seas, jagged rocks, dark skies, and foreboding clouds. Bode’s layered technique used to make this iconic image is captured seamlessly through the process of a multiple color silkscreen and we are delighted to present it as our inaugural benefit print.
Maximilian Bode is a born and raised New Yorker and was a Resident Artist at the Wassaic Project in 2012. Bode’s work has been published in the New York Times and the New Yorker, where he worked for five years directly out of Pratt as an art director, and the youngest employee in the organization. He currently teaches at Pratt and recently released a wildly successful video game, blast zone mega, for iphone and ipod touch. Max’s latest venture has been starting a creative agency called field trip. He has shown with Dumbo Arts Center, Pink Elephant Projects, American Standard Gallery, and Giant Robot.
The Wassaic Project exists to provide a genuine and intimate context for art making and strengthening local community by increasing social and cultural capital through inspiration, promotion and creation of contemporary visual and performing art. Our programs include our Annual Summer Festival, Summer Exhibition Program, Guest Curator Program, and year-round youth Education Program. Our stunning historic buildings include the Maxon Mills, a former grain elevator, and the Luther Barn, a converted livestock auction barn.
Breanne Trammell lives and works in Wassaic, NY, where she is a core member of the Wassaic Project team. Douglas Eberhardt will be returning to Wassaic in 2013 as the Print Fellow.
We are offering a limited number of prints for $650. Prints are unframed and available on a first come, first serve basis. The price of the edition will increase as the edition sells out, so we encourage you place your order soon. Please contact Eve Biddle to purchase a print: email@example.com, 917.748.4801
