Hamptonites anticipate the beautiful Parrish Art Museum's Midsummer Party every year. For me, it is a right of passage as my birthday is on July 12th, for many years I have celebrated my birth date with this extravaganza under the large white peaked tent on Jobs Lane. The century old tree surrounded by the tent in the main dining area is always a welcoming and familiar site, like an old friend with arms (branches) out stretched to greet us. 

Guests enjoyed press photos and greetings in The Parrish Art Museum surrounded by Rackstraw Downes: Onsite Paintings
1972-2008 before walking down the long, tent enclosed brick sidewalk to the main tent. 

The evenings Honoree's were Beth Rudin DeWoody and Ross Bleckner, two individuals whose lives exemplify an extraordinary commitment to the arts. Co-Chairs for the party were Deborah Bancroft and Dorothy Lichtenstein.

Just about everyone showed up for this sold-out party. Parrish's annual gala is a social gathering of the Hamptons' most sophisticated art collectors, artists, socialites, entertainers, philanthropists and business leaders. Cocktails and dinner are usually attended by supporters and VIP's then at 10pm, true to tradition, after dinner, the elegant tent turned into one big dance floor with music by DJ Tom Finn....the lower price admission of $150 pp brought in a whole new crowd of partiers wanting to dance the night away. Desserts and drinks flowed as the crowd greeted the morning at 1am.

This years guest list included Alan and Arlene Alda, Metropolitan Museum Trustee Gayle Perkins Atkins and attorney and investment banker Charles N. Atkins, art gallerist Mary Boone, Whitney and James Fairchild, James and Charlene Nederlander, Lisa de Kooning, Richard and Cessna Johnson, Steve Tanger, Sam Natapoff, Tatiana and Campion Platt, Parrish Trustees Ira and Gale Drukier and countless others.
