Design Awards in Southampton
The American Institute of Architects’ Peconic Chapter will present an exhibit of architecture and an architectural design awards program at the Southampton Cultural Center on Saturday.
The presentation of the Daniel Rowen F.A.I.A. Memorial Design Awards will be followed by a symposium led by the jurors and a discussion of the projects with the audience. The jury for the awards consists of John Belle, Mark Simon, and Carl Stein, all fellows of the institute
“American Portraits,” the latest in a series of shows from the Parrish Art Museum’s permanent collection, will open to the public on Sunday.
The exhibit will spotlight tradition and innovation in about 75 portraits, dating from as early as 1833, with a William Sidney Mount painting of Mrs. Manice, an American dignitary. Mount was based in Setauket and was part of the Hudson River School.
With so many pre-eminent American artists associated with the East End, it is not surprising that the Whitney Museum of American Art would feature many of them in the inaugural exhibition for its new home in New York City’s meatpacking district opening to the public on Friday.
