The Southampton Town Arts and Culture Committee will present its second “SHACC on the Road Tour” on Sunday, February 24, from 12:30 to 4:30 PM.
Councilman Tommy John Schiavoni will join Jeremy Dennis, an artist and SHACC member, and Hope Sandrow, the SHACC’s founding chairwoman, in leading participants on a tour of the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill and the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton.
The town-sponsored bus tour will begin at Town Hall. The first stop will be the Parrish Art Museum, where director Terrie Sulton and Dennis will lead viewers through “Moments of Transformation: Artists in Residency with Jeremy Dennis,” as well as the 2019 Student Exhibition and the installation, “Every Picture Tells a Story.”
The tour will then head to the Dan Flavin Art Institute, which is part of the Dia Art Foundation. Carly Haffner, the caretaker, will lead a tour to see Flavin’s permanent installation and artist Keith Sonnier’s installation “Dis-Play II.”
“We are delighted to be part of this initiative that will encourage the community to engage with this rich heritage on their own doorstep,” Jessica Morgan, Dia’s Nathalie de Gunzburg director, stated.
The tour is open to the public and free, but seating is limited. For more information, visit www.southamptontownny.gov or call 631-283-6000.
