NISDA is beginning an exciting new era at our Seaview Farm Art Center in Wauwinet, and Artist-in-Residence Colony in town.

Restoration at Seaview Farm

We are grateful to share that we have received funding from the Community Preservation Committee for historic restoration of NISDA’s Silos, Long Shed Studios, and Dairy Barn to begin July 1st. To accomplish this restoration of the place we all love, we are unable to present our traditional programs this summer. We will continue our Art Educational offerings next year.

Changes at our Artist Colony

As part of Nantucket’s Master Plan several of NISDA’s artist residency cottages were removed to enable widening of Washington Street. The Land Bank is enhancing the property by creating a small park on the corner. Our Artist Residency Program is continuing in NISDA’s 5 remains cottages.

Do come and celebrate at NISDA’s 46th annual Sand Castle Contest on July 27th at Jetties Beach.

Thanks to all who have created and studied at NISDA, contributing time, talent, vital resources and encouragement over the years. Looking forward to seeing you as we transition into a new era!
