A Breath of Fresh Air

A couple weekends ago, while staying out on the east end of Long Island, we visited for the first time, the new Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill.

Even though the plans had to be downsized dramatically during the financial crisis of 2007-2008, I think the result is grand.

Designed as a large barn, and taking in the wonderful natural light that inspired so many artists that moved to the area to make what is now “the Hamptons”, I was totally awe inspired and in love, thrilled to be combining my love of the ocean beached with my love of art, to make a perfect weekend.

I’m joining.
