Return to Rattlesnake Mountain is the Wassaic Project’s fifth annual summer exhibition. With five years of housing diverse, challenging, playful, and exciting group shows at the foot of Rattlesnake Mountain, the Wassaic Project welcomes viewers once again to make the trip to the little hamlet that could! Our exhibition is housed in the beautiful Maxon Mills, the Wassaic Project’s iconic seven story grain elevator turned exhibition space. The polyvalent properties of the exhibition reflect the openness of the community that supports the organization and encourage lively conversation. From Cuppetelli and Mendoza’s interactive projections on the ground floor, to Jackie Mock’s Americana reliquary at the very top, the Mill is filled with dynamic and immersive art. Works speak to the building’s unique architecture and current movements in emerging art. Return to Rattlesnake Mountain features over fifty former Artists in Residence from the Wassaic Project’s competitive and innovative Artist Residency Program who have come from around the world to live and work in the shadows of Rattlesnake Mountain.
