The Leiber Collection, helmed by fashion icon Judith Leiber in Springs, East Hampton was honored by both the Town of East Hampton and the State of New York.

In a public statement issued by the East Hampton Town Board and presented by Deputy Supervisor, Peter Van Scoyoc, it was affirmed that: "The Leiber Museum has been visited by thousands of students who regard Judith Leiber as a fashion icon and pioneer, and has welcomed visitors from virtually every state, and several European, South American and Asian countries who have made it one of the cultural monuments of East Hampton; therefore, the Town of East Hampton honors Judith and Gerson Leiber for their artistic achievements and cultural contributions to our community."

The State of New York also issued a decree that was offered on the grounds of the Leiber Collection by State Senator LaValle and State Assemblyman Fred Thiele. Their proclamation declared that: "In East Hampton, the Leibers have built a magnificent Palladian-style museum on seven acres of beautiful gardens...the legislative body is proud to extend its highest commendation to Judith Leiber for her dedication and commitment to her community and heritage."

Earlier this year, both Senator Kristen Gillibrand and Senator Charles Schumer issued similar public statements that both commemorate and honor the artistic contributions of the Leibers.

The Leiber Collection is open and free to the public on Saturdays, Sundays, and Wednesdays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
