There’s no better place to discuss Long Island’s landscape design and natural history than the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill. Its creative style has been a topic of interest for some time, and Parrish Deputy Director Scott Howe will speak about the Museum’s unique look in correlation with its location and its influence on various artists during Brain Food: Deputy Director Scott Howe on Parrish Art Museum Landscape. Howe will stun attendees with authentic maps, paintings and photographs while discussing the topic on Thursday, April 9th.
The Museum as well as the surrounding landscaping, reflect the natural environment, as well as the mission, of the East End. The design of the fourteen-acre site is indicative of the area’s culture, arts and history, according to Howe.
“Unlike New York, where natural history is an oxymoron, the East End reveals its natural history more readily,” Howe said. “Understanding that history has led me to a deeper appreciation of the East End, its legacy in American culture, and the Parrish’s contribution to the area’s rich history and unique environment.”
This event is part of Parrish Art Museum’s Brain Food lunchtime lecture series. All attendees are invited to bring lunch and enjoy it in the Lichtenstein Theater.
Tickets are $10 and free of members, children and students.
Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information, visit parrishart.org.
