New Parrish Art Museum Opens to the Public
WATER MILL, NY, 2 November 2012 – The Parrish Art Museum weathered Hurricane Sandy without damage and aims to open its doors to the public as planned on Saturday, November 10, 2012. Stretching 187m long with a width of 29m, the new facility is located on the East End of Long Island and close to the original Parrish Art Museum building in Southampton. The museum's collection, which includes some of the best known works in Long Island's East End artistic legacy, will be shown in conditions modeled upon local artist studios in order to emphasize the specific relationship of the artworks to the surrounding landscape, light and views.
