Hear Rick Lowe, founder of Project Row Houses, speak about this impact of the Wassaic Project:

“When I came here, I saw exactly the opposite of what was happening around the country where towns are being forgotten and they’re being lost because there’s no investment.”

“This is a symbolic gesture to people in different towns, different places, it’s symbolic to artists, it empowers us all to believe that we can actually engage and become the agent of change and not just a tool for it.”
