The Byrd Hoffman Water Mill Foundation

The Byrd Hoffman Water Mill Foundation, operator of the Watermill Center, is an organization founded by theater practitioner Robert Wilson to provide a supportive environment for emerging artists to explore new ideas and foster their career development. Watermill provides a haven for a next generation of artists that embrace avant-garde, multidisciplinary approaches. The Foundation also documents the work of Robert Wilson and his collaborators and manages The Robert Wilson Archive, The Watermill Collection, and The Watermill Study Library. A not-for-profit, 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, The Byrd Hoffman Water Mill Foundation was chartered in 1969 in the State of New York.
