"Dora Maar Urn" by Jonathan Adler, gives good face from every angle, an unglazed finish highlighting the muse's flawless features in fabulously delicate detail. Inspired by Dora Maar, the French photographer, poet, and painter best known for being a lover and muse of Pablo Picasso.

The East Hampton Historical Society’s annual East Hampton Antiques & Design Show is going virtual this year with an online auction.

The event traditionally takes place on the Mulford Farm, starting with a preview cocktail party that is a principal fundraiser for the historical society. In the age of COVID-19, the cocktail party will be replaced with home delivery of wine and a swag bag so the historical society’s supporters can enjoy a socially distanced evening of respite.

The “Virtual Antiques Show Party” will take place on Friday, July 17, and the online auction will launch at 6 p.m. that day and conclude one week later.

This year, the fundraiser will also collect money to purchase restaurant gift certificates for South Fork ambulance corps volunteers in addition to supporting the historical society’s programs.

East Hampton Historical Society Executive Director Maria Vann said the nonprofit needs to sustain itself, but also wants to give back to the community, particularly the first responders who have been dealing with the COVID crisis.

Keeping the event going, in some form, during the pandemic also provides a sense of normalcy, Ms. Vann said.

“The historical society is a nonprofit, and at the heart of our mission is serving the public,” she said. “So we didn’t want to miss a beat.”

The online auction, sponsored by Doyle Auction House, will include items or experiences donated by local designers Aerin Lauder, Jonathan Adler, Charlotte Moss, Kim Seybert and Marshall Watson. The historical society, itself, is putting works of art up for bid, including pieces by Thomas Moran, Claus Hoie and David Arbus.

Bidders can also use the auction site to contribute toward the restaurant gift certificates for first responders.

Once the auction goes live, it will be available at easthamptonhistory.org.events. Tickets to the virtual party are $150 and include free hand delivery across the South Fork of a Sea Bags beverage bucket made out of upcycled sailcloth. The bag comes with Wölffer Estate Vineyard wine and East Hampton Classic Shortbread by Blake’s Mother’s Cookies. Email info@easthamptonhistory.org for more information.
