    SAVE THE PLATE

    In lieu of celebrating at our beloved Midsummer Party, collection artist and renowned abstract painter Mary Heilmann created a limited-edition plate, adapted from her 2020 painting Waimea. The plate is available through contributions to the Parrish Art Museum’s Midsummer Party initiative, and all proceeds support the Museum’s Education Programs.
