In lieu of celebrating at its beloved traditional Midsummer Party, the Parrish Art Museum has reimagined a way to enjoy art together and extend appreciation for the community’s continued support. The museum is offering, for the first time, a limited-edition collectible plate designed by Mary Heilmann, an artist in the Parrish collection. “Save The Plate” will become an annual tradition with a different artist contributing each year, in tandem with the Midsummer Party in future years.

This year’s plate features an image of Heilmann’s artwork “Waimea,” a piece inspired by the artist’s experiences in Hawaii.

“This is a memory of Waimea Bay, a great surf spot in Hawaii. I visited there in 1995 to look at the big waves that curl like the circle of a plate,” said Heilmann. “Living right up the road from the ocean in Bridgehampton, I look at the waves all the time. I can even hear them. I am obsessed with the geometry of waves.”

Gifts to the Midsummer Party at the $500 level and above may choose to receive a limited-edition 14″ charger-size plate, which arrives in a presentation box. The contribution is tax deductible, less $100 for each plate. For details visit
