New Parrish Art Museum to Open in November

The wait is almost over! The Parrish Art Museum will open the doors to its new Water Mill home on November 10.

The $26.2 million, 34,400 square-foot building designed by Herzog & deMeuron will welcome the general public in with free admission throughout Veterans Day Weekend. At nearly double the size of its current spot on Jobs Lane in Southampton, the new facility will have 12,200 square feet of flexible gallery space and 7,600 square feet for the permanent collection, in addition to a cafe, a multipurpose room for lectures and other events, and landscaped grounds reflecting the natural beauty of the East End of Long Island.

“We could not be prouder of this amazing accomplishment,” said museum director Terrie Sultan. “The new building is a beautiful embodiment of the creative legacy of the East End, and with light-filled galleries, a flexible multi-purpose performance space, and many other public amenities, the Parrish will take its place as a real center for cultural engagement for the entire East End.”
