Jeremy Dennis of the Shinnecock Indian Nation decided to restore the family home where he grew up, into a communal art space for BIPOC creatives on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation in South Hampton, New York. The studio is named after Dennis' grandmother Loretta Silva whose nickname was "Ma", who came to him after many residencies and exhibitions were closed due to COVID 19, affecting BIPOC artists who were also experiencing health and financial disparities. The studio boasts art, residency, library, and more. Jeremy is joined by his mother Denise who can share stories growing up in the house and the excitement they both share seeing this home now becoming home for the arts community on the reservation.
