The Watermill Center will once again bring together the worlds of theater, art, fashion, design, and society for The Big Bang: The 19th Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit. Watermill International Summer Program Participants from over 25 countries have created eight acres of installations and performances throughout the grounds, and going to this event is like walking through a magical world of art.
The funds raised will support The Watermill Center’s International Summer Program and year round Artist Residency Program, providing a unique environment for young and emerging artists to explore and develop their work.
The more artists and art in the Hamptons, the better. This center has a huge impact on the art world and the art community.
