LongHouse Reserve Celebrated 2018 Rites of Spring
and Renaming of Amphitheater 

Guests explored New Artist Installations: 
Judith Shea and Orly Genger  

May 2, 2018 - This past weekend, LongHouse Reserve celebrated its 2018 season with Rites of Spring on Saturday with over 500 guests attending the day's festivities. The East Hampton organization had over 300 guests attend the renaming of the Amphitheater to the memory of playwright Edward Albee (1928-2016), in what would have been his 90th birth year. Academy Award winning actress Mercedes Ruehl performed the dedication with friend and fellow actor Harris Yulin. Former NEA Chair Jane Alexander spoke. The dedication will be followed by the launch of the Edward Albee Memorial Fund for art purchases. Throughout the day, guests were able to view that an exhibition of figurative works by American artist Judith Shea which is on view at the LongHouse Pavilion. A site specific work by artist Orly Genger was unveiled in the garden. 

Throughout the day, a video of Albee reading at LongHouse with Elaine Stritch was played. The reading was held in 2001, the year LongHouse honored Albee. LongHouse Award was initiated in 2001 at our first full-fledged benefit.  The LongHouse gardens were in full bloom with daffodils. 

Edward Albee (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) was a longtime friend of Longhouse. Jack Lenor Larsen, LongHouse Founder and world-renowned textile designer, had a deep friendship with Edward dating back to the 1950s when they both came to live in Manhattan.  As a Montauk resident, Edward came often to Longhouse. He served on LongHouse’s arts committee since its inception 27 years ago. Edward performed and read in the Amphitheater many times, hosted dialogues (including one with Robert Wilson), hosted galas, and even his 80th birthday. LongHouse staff and trustees were present for the dedication.

About LongHouse Reserve
LongHouse Reserve exemplifies living with art in all forms. Founded by Jack Lenor Larsen, its collections, gardens, sculpture and programs reflect world cultures and inspire a creative life. LongHouse Reserve is a 16-acre reserve and sculpture garden located in East Hampton, NY, featuring pieces from Buckminster Fuller, Yoko Ono and Willem de Kooning to name a few. Open to members and to the public for a small fee.
