ABOUT PARRISH ROAD SHOW

Parrish Road Show is the Museum’s off-site project designed to encourage engagement and interaction between artists and the communities outside the Museum’s walls. Each year, selected artists work with the Parrish and partner venues to create new work and to provide unique opportunities for visitors to see and experience art in unexpected places, from public parks and highways to historical sites and community centers.

Attendees at events in the Museum’s theater, terrace, café, or studio (ages 5 and older) are required to provide proof of full vaccination in order to maintain a mask-optional environment. Visitors to the Museum galleries (ages 2 and older) are required to wear a medical-grade mask at all times, regardless of vaccination status. Advance ticket purchase with pre-event registration is recommended. Limited tickets will be available at the door. All sales are final, non-transferable, and non-refundable.
