Join Pauline Willis, director of the AFA, at our annual summer event in the Hamptons. This art-filled day features celebrated private collections, lunch, and studio visits.
Private Tour of Light | Waves by Clifford Ross at the Parrish Art Museum
We will start our day of art at the Parrish Art Museum for a special tour of Light | Waves, a mixed media installation by artist Clifford Ross that uses new photographic techniques to simulate and enhance the force and rhythm of nature. This work is part of the museum’s “Platform” series that invites a single artist to consider the entire museum as a site, thus transcending disciplinary boundaries and encouraging new ways to experience art.
Private Tour at the home of Louise and Leonard Riggio
Our day continues at the home of Louise and Leonard Riggio, Founder and Chairman of Barnes & Noble. Since we first visited in 2014, the couple has acquired several new outdoor sculptures, including Lay of the Land (2016), a commissioned work by Maya Lin; the impressive De Maria Garden and Pavilion, housing a series of Walter De Maria works; and Richard Serra’s Grief and Reason (for Walter), created in honor of De Maria upon his death in 2013. The work indoors rotates between genres of the late 1960s and 70s, such as Minimalism, Pop, Conceptual Art, and Arte Povera with works by the likes of Ed Ruscha, Roy Lichtenstein, and Andy Warhol.
Prix-Fixe Lunch at Bobby Van’s Steakhouse
We still stop for lunch at the original Bobby Van’s Steakhouse, first opened in the summer of 1969, where he tended bar and played piano. The restaurant quickly became famous with local musicians, writers, poets, and artists.
Farewell Cocktails & Private Tour at the Home of Barbara and Richard Lane
To end this wonderful day of art, we invite you to the home of Barbara and Rick Lane—a longstanding AFA Trustee—for cocktails and a private tour of their outstanding collection. With an emphasis on international contemporary photography, their home features work by artists such as Vik Muniz, Cindy Sherman, Adam McEwen and Barbara Kruger to name a few.
Please note: We will meet at the Parrish Art Museum and will carpool between locations. Participants will be responsible for their own transportation; parking is available at each location. Addresses will be provided upon reservation. Business casual attire recommended.
