Parrish Art Museum Midsummer Party Draws 1,000+

On Saturday, July 11, The Parrish Art Museum of Water Mill hosted its annual Midsummer Party, drawing approximately 1,000 guests, many of whom were artists, philanthropists, business leaders and art-world luminaries.

Parrish supporters came from the Hamptons and beyond to enjoy the party and the museum’s current exhibitions. The museum’s current exhibitions include world-class artwork in the permanent collection as well as Chuck Close’s photographs, Tara Donovan’s new site-responsive sculptures, and a selection of works from the museum’s permanent collection.

Ron Wendt Design presented the 2015 Midsummer Party’s décor, inspired by Chuck Close’s “Anthurium” and “Chrysanthemum” photographs.
