The Parrish Art Museum is a place to discover and connect with artists and art
with a focus on the rich creative legacy of the East End and its global impact on the art world.


Inspired by the natural setting and artistic life of Long Island’s East End, the 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.

The Parrish Art Museum’s exhibitions and programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, and by the property taxpayers, from the Southampton Union Free School District and the Tuckahoe Common School District.

The Parrish provides a new way to experience art with a distinct sense of place. Sited on 14 acres of meadow, the Museum’s landscape and critically acclaimed Herzog & de Meuron-designed building honor the East End’s built and natural environment.
