Held on Saturday, July 12, 2014, the Parrish Art Museum’s annual Midsummer Party raised $1.25 million. The soiree hosted by museum director Terrie Sultan brought out nearly 1,000 guests, including artists, business leaders and philanthropists.
This Hamptons hit party was held at the Museum’s Water Mill home, which was styled in décor by Ron Wendt Design inspired by artist Jennifer Bartlett’s painting, “Amagansett Diptych #1.” The evening honored philanthropist Inga Maren Otto and author and filmmaker Katharina Otto-Bernstein for their contributions to the Parrish and their continued commitment to arts and cultures.
Attendees enjoyed cocktails, dinner, dancing and dessert provided by Olivier Cheng Catering and Events and music by New York-based Coleman Music. Performances were also given by dancer and choreographer Richard Move and his dance and theater company MoveOpolis!
Guests also had the opportunity to view the galleries, including Jennifer Bartlett’s History of the Universe, Maya Lin’s Platform and the Second Installation of the Permanent Collection, which features nearly 3,000 pieces.
The Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information on the Parrish, visit parrishart.org.
