The Caumsett Foundation

New Artist Studio - An Adaptive Reuse Project

Welcome Center AfterThe Caumsett Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of its “Artist in Residence” Program, which began in May of 2023. The program provides artists the opportunity to engage with the unique history and environment of Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve. To house this program, the Foundation has begun a 2-year plan to adapt the former Van Shed into an Artist Studio. So far, it has had a professional cleaning of years of grime from greasy vehicles, new electrical outlets, attractive pendant lighting and freshly painted windows. The Foundation has purchased artist’s desks and shelving to compliment the space. In our second year, we plan on revitalizing the floor and adding more artist-friendly amenities.
