Owner description: Inspired by the natural setting and artistic life of Long Island's East End, the Parrish Art Museum illuminates the creative process and how art and artists transform our experiences and understanding of the world and how we live in it. The Museum fosters connections among individuals, art, and artists through care and interpretation of the collection, the presentation of exhibitions, publications, educational initiatives, programs, and artists-in-residence. The Parrish is a center for cultural engagement, an inspiration and destination for the region, the nation, and the world.

Except for the 2 large-scale Lichtenstein sculptures in the meadow, a passing motorist might mistake the Parrish for an agricultural storehouse. Despite the unassuming exterior, however, the museum is a cornucopia of modern and local art. It is uniquely designed to showcase paintings, photography, and sculpture conceived on a grand scale. The expansive gallery space gives the observer an opportunity to view the art up close or from afar.
Included in the experience is a compact gift shop and a small café. There is ample parking, but getting in and out of the lot can be a challenge, especially for eastbound traffic.

Brilliantly designed and artfully nestled in the natural landscape, the Parrish Art Museum is a true gift of art and culture. Great homage is paid to Long Island artists, as well as art and artists from around the world. With ever-changing exhibits, this Museum is an inspiring place of world-class art and culture. A must-see while visiting the Hamptons!

the museum was moved a few years ago from Southhampton the Water Mill. It is an awesome space with a helpful enthusiastic staff. Easy to find with great parking.

Enjoyed Photorealism 1969 to today exhibit. The pieces assembled for this exhibit were fascinating. They looked so clear, so detailed that many visitors stood at the artwork in awe. It enlightened me to a whole new genre of art.

Enjoyed recent trip to the Parrish Art Museum. I drive past the amazing building regularly on my trips to Wainscott and have always wanted to stop. We went on a brutally cold day when no outdoor activity would do. The entrance is not clearly marked, so we had to walk the length of the building in howling, 9 degree wind-not cool!
Exhibits were good. Enjoyed the photo realism on display, particularly the watercolors. Found a lot of the textile pieces to be boring and just not very art museum worthy. Many beautiful works.
I was hoping to see more Lichtenstein, Close.
For how massive the space seems, there wasn’t a lot of art to see. Both ends of the space were cordoned off.
Will return to see other exhibits.
