On Saturday, The Parrish Art Museum fêted the season with its annual Spring Fling. Thinking pink, the sold-out event welcomed guests with cotton candy cones as fresh as peonies, and a bouquet of options for supporting the museum’s education programs and Access Parrish, its initiative for making its programs and resources accessible to audiences of varying needs.
Taking the mic in the darkened Lichtenstein Theater, newly appointed deputy director Melanie Crader invited any partygoers not glued to the silent auction to visit the wall of artwork by local school students. She also thanked the evening’s presenting sponsor, Barbara “Bobbie” Braun of the Neuwirth Foundation.
Throughout the party guests wined, dined, and socialized. Screenwriter and actress Arielle Haller-Silverstone, wearing an Isabel Marant dress from her vintage collection, dished to Avenue about her upcoming movie Love… Reconsidered, about a fateful meeting between a 30-and-flirty New Yorker and a wealthy consignment store owner. In the Hamptons, of course.
