Executive Director Transition

After a successful year, Kelly Taxter has resigned as Director of the Parrish Art Museum.Under Kelly’s direction, the Parrish reopened last March with renewed energy and enjoyed a successful spring and summer season. The Board appreciates the enthusiasm Kelly brought to the Parrish community and her passion to cultivate and promote contemporary artists of the East End.“I began my role as Director of the Parrish Art Museum in late March 2021 and was excited for the challenges that lay ahead,” said Taxter. “It was a very difficult decision to resign from my position. It has been wonderful to be part of the excitement and energy that has surrounded the institution since I began, and I thank the staff for their dedication and hard work through a transitional and complex time. The Parrish is an important cultural center that brings together many communities. It was an honor to be part of their good work, and I wish the staff and the Board the best as they move the Museum forward.”The Parrish Art Museum Board of Trustees thanks Kelly for her contributions.
