The Parrish Art Museum continues its new series of exclusive day trips to art destinations with an excursion to Mana Contemporary on May 22, 2019. Mana Contemporary, based in Jersey City, NJ, is a hub of artist activity and is a destination for those interested in the creative process. The day trip features a personal tour of five exhibitions by artists John Chamberlain, Dan Flavin, Arnulf Rainer, Fred Sandback, and Andy Warhol led by Parrish Art Museum Director Terrie Sultan, and Alicia G. Longwell, the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art and Education.
“Exclusive art day trips that provide an insider’s view of important art institutions of the region seemed to be a logical next step for the Museum to expand opportunities for our Members and the public,” Sultan explained in the announcement. “These intimate, fun excursions allow guests to engage with art and artists on a very deep level and position the Parrish and other institutions in a broader context.”
The day trip includes round-trip transportation from the Hamptons or New York City; museum admission and lunch at the Mana Contemporary Café; and complimentary snacks and wine on the return trip. The cost is $150 with registration deadline is May 15, 2019. Miss the deadline but still want to attend? Contact the Parrish for availability.
The event is open to Parrish Members as well as to the public. For registration for non-members, contact Maria Fumai-Dietrich at [email protected] to sign up.
At Mana Contemporary, Sultan and Longwell will guide guests through the exhibitions John Chamberlain: The Photographs; Dan Flavin: cornered fluorescent light; Arnulf Rainer: Angels and Crosses; Fred Sandback: Sculpture; and Andy Warhol: The Original Silkscreens. Guests will also enjoy a private performance by musical artist-in-residence Vicky Chow and visits to the art studios of Doug Argue, Gary Lichtenstein, Stanley Casselman, Mark Niskanen, and Jani-Matti Salo.
Travelers can board the privately chartered Hampton Jitney Ambassador either at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill or in Manhattan. During the return trip, wine and light refreshments will be served.
