- Saturday Night was the event of the Spring, The Parrish Art Museum
's Spring Fling! This is the major Southampton Spring Event that brings out everyone who is anyone on the East End for one big night to celebrate each other and of course celebrate everyone's favorite museum!
John Bjornen and Adam Leskinen.
The Spring Fling is the Parrish Art Museum's annual community party and fundraiser. This year's celebration featured a live band by Todd Barrie Music
, hors d'oeuvres from San Ambroeus Restaurant
, and stunning flower arrangements.
Upon entering the museum I was greeted by a very enthusiastic and lovely Museum staff. I must say the waitstaff and bartenders took great care of the guests the entire evening and were unfailingly polite, I wanted for nothing!
The current art exhibition on view throughout the museum is "Fairfield Porter: Raw - The Creative Process of an American Master"
which will be on exhibit to June 13, and was a simply beautiful backdrop for this fabulous party.
The front room was bustling as guests used the luxury auction oval table as a route to circle and work the room. The ladies all looked beautiful and seen working the room were Dara Goldstein
