However, impressed us particularly the exposure of Clifford Ross, photographer of seas, and all the work of curator of the same, which indicates that there is an intelligent address making the Museum an interesting attraction after the Museum. He is easily accessible from New York, renting a car.
屋外の芝生にオブジェの展示があるほか、室内も大小さまざまな現代アートがあり、結構見応えがありました。料金は１２ドルくらいだったと思いますが、天気もよく散歩も兼ねて十分満足できました。 more »Outdoor lawn sculpture exhibition and very large and small various contemporary art, there was quite impressive. Rates are $ 12 was a weather often doubles as a walk, 10 minutes.

Underwhelming. Worth visiting if you love art, but plan to spend one hour maximum. The collection was nice enough. No blockbusters for the mass tourist population, but casual art lovers will recognize the names of artists represented. The Leo Villareal installation in the lobby is the mesmerizing highlight. I did appreciate the thoughtful/intellectual tone of the wall text and overall curatorial perspective. The grounds are virtually empty - a disappointing waste of space where the sculpture garden should be. The building is a depressing dud. In our era of expressive museum architecture, this building is a black joyless tragedy. The shape is a riff on traditional rural architecture - a shed for art. I'm sure the famous European architects in charge of the design were proud of themselves for "nailing" rural American architecture. And they did. But instead of elevating or transforming that typology, the interpretation is too literal. It can only seem interesting to those who don't really know the buildings they are copying. There are a few nice-ish moments, but most of the detailing is basic. The most amusing failure is a concrete bench that curves out from the wall and extends the length of the building. It's a mediocre bench, and it looks out over a weedy, artless field. A fitting summary of the entire Parrish experience.
Small museum with a focus on American artists housed in a unique space.
Awful Architecture Inside and Out! I agree with another reviewer - it is like being at a concentration camp - I always feel like I have to make a run to the car as I make my escape before the machine guns open up. And the wasted use of interior space is appalling. The center of the building oppressively points down with heavy wooden beams all the way down in the dark pathway to the exhibition rooms - the tall, distracting, unpainted plywood ceiling, the sparse natural light, the small rooms even though the museum is so long, the ugly, ugly artificial light, all in an area of intensely, beautiful, natural light - and all of this as a slap in the face of the gorgeous former museum, that still sits wonderfully in town, the classic museum, that seems to have as much space as the space set aside in this long, boring new building. Frank Lloyd Wright would have condemned this new museum before it got off the drawing board. Yes, shame on the waste and poor planning of those in charge. Now we have to live with this? If only the Fairfield Porter collection could have been kept in the old museum, within walking distance of his former home, and within the spirit of his lovely town. Thankfully, the old museum is now being used by an art group - so worth a visit there again - just to be in that superior space. I fondly remember and an Alex Katz exhibit there, and a Pop Art exhibition too that was currated by Henry Geldzahler - and other fine shows. I hate this museum, which is very painful to say, but I do - just the thought of it always makes me mad.
Enjoyable exhibits and events in a well appointed space. Student exhibits are a particular personal favorite.
The Landscape Pleasures lectures were excellent.
