ABOUT US


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.

 

We present 15 temporary exhibitions each year, including new installations drawn from our world-class collection of more than 3,000 works, special exhibitions that reconsider the work of a single artist, and group exhibitions that explore compelling themes. The Parrish produces over 100 public programs—film, music, and talks—and offers a year-round schedule of inspiring classes and workshops.

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.
