Last Saturday night at the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, they held their annual benefit, the 2011 Midsummer Party gala. Considered one of the cultural events of the summer in the Hamptons, they began with cocktails and a private viewing of Dorothea Rockburne: In My Mind’s Eye – the first ever retrospective of the artist.

Guests were seated for dinner at about 7:45. They honored the Parrish’s Founding Partners who have been so generous in supporting the life and vision of the Parrish and the development of its new Herzog & de Meuron-designed building which will open in the summer of 2012.
