Mission Statement

Inspired by the natural setting and artistic life of Long Island's East End, the Parrish Art Museum illuminates the creative process and how art and artists transform our experiences and understanding of the world and how we live in it. The Museum fosters connections among individuals, art, and artists through care and interpretation of the collection, the presentation of exhibitions, publications, educational initiatives, programs, and artists-in-residence. The Parrish is a center for cultural engagement, an inspiration and destination for the region, the nation, and the world. – Adopted by the Parrish Art Museum Board of Trustees, September 13, 2014

In November of 2017, the Parrish celebrated five years in Water Mill. See all that we accomplished together in the video below.
