Although we missed hosting our Midsummer Party this year, we truly value your support of the Museum, its exhibitions, educational programs, and the many ways art and people connect, even through these unusual circumstances.

If you haven’t already done so, please consider making a belated-gift to our Midsummer Party.

As a token of our appreciation, we are offering a limited-edition collectible plate designed by artist Mary Heilmann. This “SAVE THE PLATE” initiative will become an annual tradition with a different artist contributing each year and in tandem with the Midsummer Party in future years.


East End artist and longtime friend of the Parrish, Heilmann has loaned her extraordinary work, Waimea, to be recreated on a 14″ charger-size plate:

“This is a memory of Waimea Bay, a great surf spot in Hawaii.  I visited there in 1995 to look at the big waves that curl like the circle of a plate. Living right up the road from the ocean in Bridgehampton, I look at the  waves all the time.  I can even hear them. I am obsessed with the geometry of waves.”

–Mary Heilmann, 2020

Gifts to the Midsummer Party at the $500 level and above may choose to receive the limited-edition plate, which arrives in a presentation box. Your contribution is tax deductible, less $100 for each plate.

Thank you for your generosity and your continued support of the Museum.
