“For nearly a decade, I’ve witnessed the children on the East End—including my own daughter— delight in and benefit from the rich educational offerings at the Museum throughout the year,” said event co-chair Laura Wynne. “I am honored to be a part of this important event, and look forward to endless possibilities for art education at the Parrish for the entire community.”

Spring Fling began in the 1990s and now raises over $100,000 annually for the Parrish Art Museum’s Education Department. Since the opening of the new building in Water Mill, the Museum has directly served 4,500 families through 13 events, offered 215 school tours, 132 open studios, and 56 after school art workshops, and 27 weeks of art camps. This is the third year that Spring Fling will be held at the Museum’s new Herzog & de Meuron building in Water Mill.

The Parrish Art Museum is the oldest cultural institution on the East End of Long Island, uniquely situated within one of the most concentrated creative communities in the United States. The Parrish is dedicated to the collection, preservation, interpretation, and dissemination of art from the nineteenth century to the present, with a particular focus on honoring the rich creative legacy of the East End, celebrating the region’s enduring heritage as a vibrant art colony, telling the story of our area, our “sense of place,” and its national—even global—impact on the world of art. The Parrish is committed to educational outreach, to serving as a dynamic cultural resource for its diverse community, and to celebrating artistic innovation for generations to come.
