On This Site is an art-based photography project by Shinnecock artist Jeremy Dennis. The purpose of this project is to preserve and create awareness of culturally significant Native American locations on Long Island, New York.
On This Site receives the Dreamstarter Grant from Running Strong, which has provided ten $10,000 grants each year to community non-profits who will mentor a young Dreamstarter and work with them to implement a project inspired by the young person’s dream for her or his community. Working with Pennsylvania State University, Jeremy Dennis works to complete a Dreamstarter application outlining the project idea, its funding needs, and how it will benefit youth.
The Water Mill Center hosts Dennis for an artist residency, providing financial backing, a studio, and time to produce a physical book of the project in it’s current stage of research.
On This Site has it’s first photo exhibition at the Shinnecock Indian Nation Cultural Center and Museum.
