The Dream Machine, a custom Airstream that doubles as a trailer and an art exhibit, is scheduled to appear at the Parrish Art Museum from Thursday, July 2nd through Sunday, July 5th and at the Silas Marder Gallery from Thursday, July 9th through Monday, September 7th.

"The Dream Machine was conceptualized to bring innovative and fun accessories to the market," shared Sara Meltzer of weR2. "We are thrilled to welcome in beach blankets by Mary Ellen Carroll and new napkin designs by Kate Shepherd to the weR2 line."

The mobile art exhibit was inspired by Richard Hamilton's 1956 photo-collage "Just what is it that makes today's home so different, so appealing?" and has previously been displayed at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Art Basel Miami Beach and the New York City High Line.

Described as "the most ambitions weR2 production to date," The Dream Machine will debut new functional and artistic objects this summer, as well as external artwork from Ryan McGinness, which will wrap around the trailer's exterior. Other new additions include cloth cocktail napkins, throw pillows, embroidered tote bags, serving trays, scented candles and cards.

Collaborating artist Mary Ellen Carroll will kickoff The Dream Machine's stay in the Hamptons at the Parrish Art Museum, with "Public Utility 2.0," an analog that retrofits TV frequencies for broadband connectivity. Andrea Grover, the Century Arts Foundation Curator of Special Projects at the Parrish, described Carroll's presentation as "a revolutionary way for the artist and the Museum to host complex live conversations about creativity, community and land."

In addition, various private events will be held throughout the summer to celebrate The Dream Machine and the artists and designers involved in its making.

Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill and the Silas Marder Gallery is located at 120 Snake Hollow Road in Bridgehampton. For more information, visit www.wer2-studio.com.
