The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill will host its beloved fifth annual Summer Family Party, a benefit to support the Museum's year-round initiatives, on Sunday, August 19.

From 3 to 6 p.m., a variety of engaging, entertaining offerings will be presented inside the Museum and outdoors on the lawn and terrace.

"This festive party, in the beautiful setting of the Parrish, is truly one of a kind here in the Hamptons," said Board Co-President and Committee Member Alexandra Stanton. "Where else could families have the incredible opportunity to work face-to-face with nationally renowned artists who offer their time for the Museum and to inspire future generations?"

During workshops, little ones and their families will have the chance to create alongside established artists, including Paton Miller, who is returning to the Summer Family Party for the fourth time, as well as Monica Banks, Eric Dever, Brian Farrell, Bastienne Schmidt, and Almond Zigmund.

Additionally, there will be a myriad of interactive experiences. Parrish's Lichtenstein Theater will welcome an instructor from A Flippin' Good Time who will teach children about improvising on-camera, as well as guide attendees through creating their own classic flipbook. For those looking for a challenge, take part in the self-paced art scavenger hunt through the Museum's expansive 12,000 square feet of gallery space.

There will also be brief docent-led tours that explore the Parrish's current works, including a large-scale neon sculpture by Keith Sonnier and Cameroonian artist Barthélémy Toguo's life-size boat that is surrounded by 100 artworks that highlight boats throughout the years.

When guests need a snack, they can enjoy a freshly-prepared barbeque dinner and an ice cream truck will be making an appearance towards the culmination of the event.

"In addition to the special educational aspect, the party is a fun-filled afternoon of engaging activities for families to do together—all while supporting the Parrish Art Museum's year-round programs," Stanton added.

Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Baldwin will serve as Honorary Co-Chairs, with Robin Abendaño, Sarah Aibel, Shazma Alibhai, Mimi Crawford, Cristina Greeven Cuomo, Andrea Greeven Douzet, Notoya Green, Robin Lefcourt, Heather McDowell, Leslie Miller, Samantha Mollett, Elizabeth Fearon Pepperman, Carole Reed, Marcia Dunn Sobel, Alexandra Stanton, Nadia Vazirani, and Joey Wölffer as the Steering Committee.

Tickets to the Summer Family Party start at $75 for Members.

Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mil. For more information, visit parrishart.org.
