The Parrish Art Museum is committed to making its collection, building, and programs accessible to all audiences. To further that goal Parrish educators, in partnership with regional agencies, have developed Access Parrish–a series of learning experiences specifically designed for youth and adults with varied needs and abilities. All Access Parrish programs are offered free of charge.
