All visitors enjoy free admission to the Museum’s galleries, Creativity Lounge, Museum Shop, and Parrish Café!


While you’re in our lobby, try out our new Mini Print Vending Machine! Brought to us by Inciardi Prints, the Mini Print Vending Machine dispenses a surprise print for just $1 (in quarters).

Print artist Anastasia Inciardi dreamed up this idea, inspired by nostalgic vending machines on Brooklyn’s sidewalks. Since its introduction in 2022, the Mini Print Vending Machine has grown in popularity with over 17 million views on Instagram. Anastasia, who has a print studio in Portland, Maine, has a deep connection to Amagansett, where she spent her summers at her grandparents’ home. She has a long-standing appreciation for the Parrish Art Museum and will be creating custom prints for the Parrish! 


Fallen Fruit Talk & Art Project | 11 AM–1:30 PM
Join the art collaboration Fallen Fruit in a talk and participatory art project plus tastings of local foods!

David Allen Burns and Austin Young / Fallen Fruit present an informal discussion about their twenty-year practice of commissioned art projects in the public realm. These immersive experience-based artworks are created for cities around the world. The selected works are often considered contemporary portraits of a city or place. Using strategies of collage and collaboration, Austin and David from Fallen Fruit will create a topical magazine with participants. Join us and contribute to the digital zine created specifically for the Parrish Art Museum and the East End of Long Island. 


“For our work, we are committed to making artworks that celebrate the public and local history. We love to make art with people. Storytelling and artmaking during the events become … a portrait of the place or everyone who is there that day. The magazine itself becomes an artwork that is made from the public and by the public. Much of the art work we make is serialized work and the collections represent cities around the world. In this way, the works are extending and reactivating in different ways, new exhibitions and practices.”—Fallen Fruit
