It was a busy weekend in the East on the social circuit!
More than 600 art-loving Hamptonites and revelers donned their most festive robes and made their way to the Parrish Art Museum’s annual summer solstice festivities.
To get the blood flowing, the two-day outdoor party kicked off with a dance party on Friday night.
Event co-chairs Larry Milstein and Destinee Ross-Sutton welcomed a group of bright young people to the museum’s magically lit terrace while Papi Juice’s Oscar Nñ kept the catchy soundtrack going late into the night .
After an evening of cardio, the museum toned things down Saturday with a divinely decorated dinner co-chaired by Deborah F. Bancroft, Preston T. Phillips and George Wells. The breathtaking scene was created in honor of Racquel Chevremont and Mickalene Thomas, known collectively as Two Black Women, philanthropist and collector Miyoung Lee, and artist Jasper Johns whose work is currently featured in An Art of Change: Prints by Jasper Johns, 1960 – 2018 at the Museum.
After dinner, Sara Friedlander of Christie’s hosted a paddle raiser in support of the Museum’s programs, exhibits and educational initiatives.
So, curious to see inside the lively party weekend?
