The Parrish

Parrish Art Museum Midsummer Party in Southampton, NY
The Parrish Art Museum in Southampton held its annual Midsummer Party last Saturday night at the museum's arboretum on Jobs Lane.This year they honored the "creative spirit of the East End," including director/choreographer Patricia Birch, visual artist Chuck Close, author/historian  Barbara Goldsmith, interior designers Tony Ingrao and Randy Kemper, musician G.E. Smith, and dancer/choreographer Paul Taylor

This was the final gala held in the Jobs Lane / Southampton space, and a last hurrah and farewell before the museum will move to the new Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, designed by Herzog & de Meuron and opening November 10th.

The event also celebrated the fact that Parrish is closing in on its capital campaign goal, with 95% raised to date. Also fun, the Museum's Landscape Campaign also offers the opportunity to help landscape the new site — from a $30 hybrid poplar to an entire garden.

Co-chairs of the event were Debbie Bancroft, Carlo Bronzini Vender, Etta Froio, Dorothy Lichtenstein, Michele Pesner, Douglas Polley, Frederic M. Seegal, Marcia Dunn Sobel, and Alexandra Stanton.

The Midsummer Party is one of the major highlight of a summer season calendar jammed with parties big and small.  It is also the Parrish Art Museum's most important fundraising event of the year.

The evening began with cocktails and viewing of The Landmarks of New York and Liminal Ground: Adam Bartos Long Island Photographs, 2009-2011. The Landmarks of New York comprises ninety photographs of New York City's more than 1,200 landmarks, accompanied by descriptive and historical text. Liminal Ground features sixteen lush photographs that capture the evanescence of the everyday.

The Parrish's annual gala is a social gathering of the Hamptons' most sophisticated art collectors, artists, socialites, entertainers, philanthropists, and business leaders. Over the years, thanks to these people and those supporters who came before them, this museum as grown into a major institution in the East End of Long Island.
