From Friday, August 13, through Sunday, August 15, the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will host its Midsummer Weekend — three distinct events that bring together artists, art collectors, curators, philanthropists and business leaders from the East End, New York City and beyond.

The weekend kicks off with Midsummer Dance featuring a DJ Set by James Murphy (DFA Records/LCD Soundsystem) on Friday, August 13, from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. (tickets start at $500); a Midsummer Dinner follows on Saturday, August 14, with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. and a seated dinner at 7:30 p.m. on the museum’s covered terrace (tickets start at $1,500); and finally, the Midsummer Family benefit closes the festivities on Sunday, August 15, from 3 to 6 p.m., featuring a performance by the National Circus Project and a creative workshop with artist Nathan Carter (tickets $125 for adults, $100 for children).

The Midsummer Dinner honors artist Tomashi Jackson, whose exhibition “The Land Claim” will be on view. Dorothy Lichtenstein is the event’s honorary chair. A philanthropist who has long supported the Parrish, her late husband is the subject of “Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948–1960,” which opened at the museum on August 1.

Guests at all events will have the opportunity to view those and other special exhibitions as well as the outdoor exhibition Field of Dreams.

The Parrish Art Museum is at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For tickets, visit parrishart.org.
