Ma's House & BIPOC Art Studio

An art space for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color

The health disparities and economic injustice within minority communities that have become clear during the COVID-19 pandemic and rise of social justice activism against police brutality, bigotry, and systemic racism show a deep urgency for artists who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color (BIPOC) to have safe spaces for free creativity and healing.

Join us in helping to create this space.

About Us

Ma's House & BIPOC Art Studio is led by Indigenous artist artist and photographer Jeremy Dennis. Dennis is an enrolled member of the Shinnecock Indian Nation.


The house will serve as a communal art space based on the Shinnecock Indian Reservation in Southampton, New York. The family house, built in the 1960s, will serve as Dennis' house to manage the project that includes a residency program for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), art studio, library, along with hosting an array of art and history-based programs for tribe members and the broader local community.

Shinnecock Indian Nation tribal members volunteering in housing rehabilitation efforts. Taking a break after removing the 700+ pound rusted furnace from the basement of Ma’s House.

Our latest activity

Since June, we raised over $30,000 of the $50,000 goal. With that money, a lot has already been done, including removing leaky plumbing, pouring a new cement floor in the basement to cover the dirt, and replacing the floor of the kitchen and bathroom.
