Dear Members and Friends,

The world is a new place today as we face the COVID-19 crisis and all of its consequences. We hope that you are finding ways to manage through this challenging time, remain healthy, and keep a positive outlook. Although the Parrish Art Museum cannot offer a physical space for solace during these times, we can offer a multitude of online resources to divert and even fascinate you, in the safety of your own home, allowing the Parrish to continue to be the place for inspiration, connection, and comfort that you know so well.

During our temporary closure we continue to incur operating expenses that are not being offset by the revenue we anticipated and that is why we are writing to all of our friends, both new and old, in an effort to help the Museum ride out this difficult period and continue to be an invaluable resource. Your support will help ensure that the Parrish will continue to be a place where art and community come together to feed our souls and raise our spirits.

Please make a contribution today to help secure the future of the Parrish here.

Any gift, regardless of its size, will help our effort and send a valuable message about your belief in the importance of what the arts can offer us, in good times and bad.

Thank you for your support. Now, please take a moment for yourself to be inspired, uplifted, and connected to the Parrish, as we hope you will always remain. Visit parrishart.org. With a spirit of sharing and unity we will all get through this together.

Warm and grateful regards,

Mary Frank
President and Interim Chair
