Reminder: The New, Bigger Parrish Art Museum Opens Tomorrow!

Pin It

As promised last month, and having fortunately escaped Hurricane Sandy’s wrath, the Hamptons’s Parrish Art Museum will open its new Herzog & de Meuron-designed building in Water Mill tomorrow with three days of free admission. The sprawling $26.2 million structure, with its 34,000 total square footage and 12,200 square feet of galleries, more than triples the exhibition space of the 115-year-old institution’s former Southampton home.

In addition to seven vast galleries with huge skylights (see above) devoted to exhibiting works from its permanent collection — the Parrish’s first dedicated permanent collection spaces in its history — the museum will open with a number of temporary exhibitions including a survey devoted to the works of Malcolm Morley, “Malcolm Morley: Painting, Paper, Process” (on view through January 13).

As part of its opening celebrations, museum attendance will be free Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
