The Watermill Center once again brought together the worlds of theater, art, fashion, design, and society for The 23rd Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit & Auction. Watermill’s International Summer Program participants come from over 25 countries to create installations and performances throughout our eight-and-a-half acre grounds for the event. The funds raised support The Watermill Center’s year-round Artist Residency and Education Programs, providing a unique environment for young and emerging artists to explore and develop new work.
The Watermill Center is pleased to announce its first collaboration with The Bruce High Quality Foundation (BHQF), as part of this year’s summer benefit & auction. Entitled As We Lay Dying, The Bruce High Quality Foundation presented a variety of works and performances interspersed throughout The Center’s grounds. This year’s gala also features sound installations with ANOHNI.
