Show Of Support

On Tuesday, June 16, the Parrish Art Museum received a meaningful and heartening endorsement from our community, as voters approved the annual proposition for funding for the museum through a tax levy, continuing a four-decade show of support for the Parrish.

On behalf of the museum, I want to extend my deep appreciation to the residents of the Tuckahoe and Southampton school districts who participated in the vote.

The approved funds will enable us to continue to collaborate with local teachers to create on- and off-site programs for Tuckahoe and Southampton school students. The Parrish is a year-round resource for the community, providing tours, art classes and workshops, and is free every day for students and children.

Our Resident Members program provides residents and employees of the Tuckahoe and Southampton school districts free admission to the museum and many of its programs.

The Parrish has a long history of deep connections with partners that represent many aspects of our rich community. These relationships have informed and guided all that we do — from exhibitions to public programs to educational engagement — and we realize that our commitment to this work is more important now than ever. We will continue to develop existing and initiate new partnerships, listening to and learning from their voices, and remaining committed to their missions as well as to our own.

We are truly grateful for the community’s validation of the vital role the Parrish Art Museum plays on the East End of Long Island. We look forward to seeing you soon at the Parrish.
