    The Parrish is here for you

    Out of an abundance of caution and in support of efforts to slow the spread of Covid-19, we are temporarily closing the galleries as of January 5, 2021, planning to reopen in early spring based on guidance at that time. The Meadow and the Field of Dreams remain open and free to all visitors, and we will continue to offer a robust schedule of online museum experiences.

    Field of Dreams

    Visit Field of Dreams, our inaugural sculpture exhibition created to extend the galleries outdoors with work that engages and responds to the Parrish’s architecture and landscape. The Meadow is free and open to the public every day.

    Artist Stories from the Pandemic

    Last spring, the Parrish Art Museum invited more than 100 artists  to contribute a two-minute video to Artist Stories from the Pandemic, an archival project chronicling artists’ response to the COVID-19 crisis. Read the review by Joyce Beckenstein in the September issue of The Brooklyn Rail.
