NEW OUTDOOR EXHIBITION | Carmen Herrera: Estructuras Monumentales

With spring in full swing, the Museum’s Meadow will soon bloom with significant sculptures by Cuban American artist Carmen Herrera (1915–2022). Opening on May 25, Carmen Herrera: Estructuras Monumentales will feature four large-scale structures in primary colors. The outdoor sculptures, first envisioned by Herrera in the 1960s, will be installed on the South Meadow for passersby to see from Montauk Highway and for visitors to experience up close.  



NEW ACQUISITION | Bastienne Schmidt’s Colored Grids, 2023
Two sewn duck cotton canvas pieces made in 2023 from Bastienne Schmidt’s Colored Grids series were gifted by the Spektor Family Foundation and the artist in memory of her father Gerhard Schmidt, respectively. Schmidt’s multi-disciplinary approach explores memory, history, and time through intricate patterns and textures. Schmidt has a long-standing relationship with the Museum, including her participation in the 2016 Parrish Road Show, the Museum’s annual offsite exhibition series.
