THE 2019–2020 PERMANENT COLLECTION INSTALLATION IS CURRENTLY BEING INSTALLED.
Each year, the Museum creates a new exhibition that contextualizes works and amplifies themes by important artists drawn from the Parrish’s permanent collection of more than 3,000 works. This year’s seven-gallery installation, What We See, How We See, features paintings and works on paper by a wide range of artists, including a major gift from the Saul Steinberg Foundation that encompasses the varied projects, such as wallpaper and fabric, by this prolific artist who lived and worked in Springs for some 50 years; American Landscapes from the 19th and early 20th centuries, highlights from the Parrish’s renowned holdings; and Circles, Squares, and Squiggles, works that encourage viewers to take a closer look by artist Josef Albers, Dan Christensen, and Joung Youngerman, among many others.
