Parrish Art Museum Raises One Million at Annual Fundraising Gala

Sarah Bochicchio

16 July 2013

This past Sunday marked the Parrish Art Museum’s Midsummer Party, a yearly gala that met with exceptional results. Around 575 guests attended the dinner and nearly one thousand attended the “After Ten” party. With tickets ranging from $1,500 to $50,000, the museum raised an impressive total of one million dollars.

Hosted by Terrie Sultan, Director of the Parish Art Museum, this Midsummer party was notably the first to be held at the museum’s new site in the Hamptons. The new building was designed by Herzog & de Meuron and is situated on fourteen acres of land.

Dinner was served outdoors, after which attendees had the option of heading inside to visit to the museum’s latest exhibitions, dance, or simply relax. Distinguished guests included Cynthia Rowley, Stefano Tonchi, and Cindy Sherman.

In the galleries, one could find Alice Aycock Drawings: Some Stories Are Worth Repeating, which showcased Aycock’s drawings as a means of better understanding her sculpture. Also on view was Platform: Josephine Meckseper, an installation that responded to the museum’s location and design.
