The Southampton Center, a new arts and cultural center, is offering free summer programs for the whole family starting Friday, July 12 to Sunday, August 25.

The free activities will include a diverse line up of movies, interactive educational workshops, live music, children's programs, visual art, and dance performances.

"We are proud to partner with this wonderful group of producing organizations and artists in our inaugural season," said Southampton Center Board Chair J. Whitney Stevens. "This summer we hope to offer an array of programming for everyone to enjoy. It is exciting to engage with the community to define this space for future generations."

The Center's summer schedule will also include live performances from East End favorites such as Goat on the Boat, Puppet Theater, and Jazz at Lincoln Center. They have also partnered with the Hamptons International Film Festival to screen both indoor and outdoor films featuring both classic favorites as well as independent films which haven't been released in theaters.

During July, a photography exhibit of Diane Tuft's works and a lighting installation by Bentley Meeker which address critical issues of climate change and personal consumption will be on display. Also in July, David Michalek is presenting an excerpt of his renowned Slow Dancing, which has been seen at Lincoln Center and Trafalgar Square in London. In August, multiple site-specific experiential installations from Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen, Aurora Robson, Eric Corriel, and Krista Dragomer will be showcased.

"The Village of Southampton is committed to a cultural use for 25 Jobs Lane and is enthusiastically working with Southampton Center," commented Mayor Mark Epley. "The array of arts and cultural programming offers a new way to experience this beloved building and grounds. We are thrilled to welcome Southampton Center as a new neighbor in our community."

The Southampton Center is located at 25 Jobs Lane in Southampton. For additional information visit www.southamptoncenter.org.
