The Parrish Art Museum just became easier to find. A new sign has been installed at its entrance with another one on its way for Route 27 (Montauk Highway).
The new entrance sign is aluminum with black powder coat finish and Aevenir typeface. The sign to come on Montauk Highway will be courtesy of New York State and it's Path Through History program.
