Renowned textile designer, artist and gardener Jack Lenor Larsen, the founder of LongHouse Reserve in the Northwest Harbor section of East Hampton, died in December last year at age 93, leaving LongHouse, itself, and the 16-acre sculpture garden surrounding it to the LongHouse Reserve Foundation, which now carries on his legacy.
More than 60 temporary sculptures stand at LongHouse Reserve, both permanent installations — including works by Buckminster Fuller, Yoko Ono and Willem de Kooning — and transient sculptures. New to the gardens this year are sculptures by Daniel Arsham, John Giorno, Prune Nourry and Beverly Pepper. Set among the flowers, shrubs and trees of LongHouse Reserve, the artworks are complemented and enhanced by the natural world.
LongHouse Reserve is open to the public with reservations this month on Saturdays, May 8 and May 15; Sunday, May 9, and Wednesday, May 12. Admission is $15 for adults and $10 for seniors, or free for members, children, students veterans and active-duty military. On Saturday, May 8, LongHouse hosts its seventh annual Family Day, with sessions at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., free for families with children and including art activities for kids, garden tours and more.
