Kendrick’s Kitchen Renovation 

In August 2016, the Hambidge Center set out to take care of some much needed renovations of our beloved Lucinda's Rock House.

We decided to first focus on the place where the magic happens – the kitchen – in honor of Kendrick Reusch, son of Belinda and Ken Reusch, who loved to cook and spend time with his family around the grill.

One of Hambidge’s time-honored traditions for our artists-in-residence is their communal dinner prepared by our own chef. Imagine the conversation around the table while enjoying dinner with poets, painters, ceramicists, composers, dancers, textile artists, scientists, writers, sculptors, and chefs. There is a true alchemy that happens with our residents and it happens over dinner. Along with the kitchen, we also made critical repairs to the Rock House chimney, roof, plumbing, electrical and bathroom.

We raised a great deal of support and received many gifts in-kind or greatly discounted, such as the appliances from Wolf and Sub-Zero, but we still have funds to raise and we hope you will consider contributing to help us cross the finish line! We need to raise $50,000 to complete the repairs and this incredible kitchen that will feed today’s most inspired talents for generations to come.

Please help us complete this transformative renovation of Hambidge’s most utilized space with a tax deductible contribution.
