There are fewer than 40 days until Memorial Day weekend, and while we at Dan’s Papers can’t wait, we also know there are many things we have to squeeze in during the next few weeks on the East End, lest we lose our chance with all that summer brings. We know that if we don’t get out and do these now, we’ll have to wait until after Labor Day before we try again…and so will you!

We continue our countdown of things to do before Memorial Day weekend on the East End with #37: Visit the Parrish Art Museum

Now in its second year of operation in Water Mill, the Parrish Art Museum is a fantastic art destination year round, but why wait until summer to tour this first-rate cultural institution? The museum is constantly showing selections from its impressive permanent collection, as well as a rotating schedule of focused exhibitions, lectures, films and much more.

As demonstrated by its incredible collection, curation and even the recent acquisition (for long term loan) of Roy Lichtenstein’s massive “Brushstroke” sculpture, installed out front, the Parrish stands among a world class list of art museums—and it’s right here! Stop putting off your visit before traffic, crowds and the busy pace of summer give you further reason to delay.

Come back tomorrow for 50 Things to Do Before Memorial Day in the Hamptons #36.
