SOUTHAMPTON, NY – The Parrish Art Museum’s Midsummer Party, a highlight of the Hamptons summer season, will take place Saturday, July 10, starting at 7 pm. This year’s event will honor Beth Rudin DeWoody and Ross Bleckner, two individuals whose lives reflect an extraordinary commitment to the arts. Parrish Trustees Deborah Bancroft and Dorothy Lichtenstein are the party’s co-chairs.

          One of America’s most energetic and creative arts patrons, Beth Rudin DeWoody is a committed philanthropist, collector, curator, and supporter of the Parrish. Her dedication is matched only by her creativity and leadership. Over the years, Beth has served as a trustee of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and New Yorkers for Children, to name just a few.

          Ross Bleckner has been the subject of major exhibitions in museums internationally—he was the youngest artist ever to have a solo exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum—and his paintings are held in prominent collections throughout the world.  Also a noted humanitarian, Ross serves on the board of AIDS Community Research Initiative of America (ACRIA) and is the only artist ever to be named as a United Nations Ambassador for Goodwill for his work with children in Uganda.

          Beth Rudin DeWoody will be feted by Anne Pasternak, President and Artistic Director of Creative Time. Celebrated artist Eric Fischl will deliver a testimonial about Ross Bleckner.

          Always a sell-out, the Midsummer Party begins with cocktails at 7 pm and dinner at 8 pm in an air conditioned tent in the Museum’s historic arboretum. Glorious Food is this year’s caterer, DJ Tom Finn will provide the music, and Claire Bean, Floral and Event Design, will create the decor. The fun continues with dessert, drinks, and dancing from 10 pm to 1 am. The party draws approximately 500 dinner guests and 500 “After Ten” attendees—primarily affluent Hamptons second-homeowners and individuals with sophisticated tastes and interest in the visual arts. Individual dinner tickets are $1000 for Patrons, $2500 for Benefactors. Tables are priced from $10,000 to $50,000. After Ten Tickets are priced at $150. More information and tickets are available from the Special Events Office, 631-283-2118, ext. 42, or from the museum’s web site,
