|The new Parrish Museum of Art, Water Mill, New York.|
|Designed and built during a time when money was tight,|
nothing was wasted of architectural frivolity.
|Even from the air, the Parrish Museum of Art (barn) |
gives little indication of the fine art it houses.
|Inside, the museum dramatically reflects its outward structure.|
|The original Parrish Museum of Art in Southampton, built and enlarged over the course of several years, mostly dated from around 1900.|
|Perhaps as a result of cost-cutting early on, the museum |
in no way competes visually with the art it houses.
|The Parrish permanent collection is marked by the work of|
virtually every important artist to ever call Long Island home.
