Otto who?


Otto’s Abode seeks to encourage, examine, and celebrate collaboration and community exchange with and within a public home for the arts.

Otto’s Abode is?

Nestled in the knobby north-west foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, in the remote hamlet of Wanakena, Otto’s Abode is a volunteer-based general store/exhibition space, which its four creators view as a collaborative public art project.  The aim of the project is to cultivate an environment that showcases positive and enlightening experiences; where the professional and the amateur, the performer and the spectator, can entertain, puzzle and inform, grab a snack, a map, and a bag of ice, and be informed, entertained, and puzzled.


Otto’s Abode seeks ideas. Otto’s Abode seeks sounds. Otto’s Abode seeks obsession. Otto’s Abode seeks what it might not realize it will uncover through this search. Otto’s Abode invites you to become one of their events.

A mixture of formal and informal, subtle and more obvious interventions with and within Otto’s Abode intends to facilitate an active sense of wandering and discovery while in and around this ever-changing venue.
