A Return to the Parrish Art Museum

At the end of 2012 I visited the Parrish Art Museum shortly after the grand opening of the Long Island institution's Herzog & de Meuron building, writing a weekly dose on it in early 2013. Over the weekend I finally returned, specifically to see the Tara Donovan Slinky sculptures. Those sculptures were decent, kind of worth the trip, but I was more impressed by how in just a over a couple years the building has integrated itself into the landscapes designed by Reed Hilderbrand Associates. So below are a few 2012/2015 photos comparisons (keep in mind that the views are not exact matches, but they are fairly close).

  1. Stunning design. Its location really contrasts with the general look of it - which brings it out. Plus those Roy Lichtenstein sculptures you showed look great! I'd love to see this in person some day.
