About the Parrish Art Museum
Inspired by the natural setting and artistic life of Long Island's East End, the Parrish Art Museum illuminates the creative process and how art and artists transform our experiences and understanding of the world and how we live in it. The Museum fosters connections among individuals, art, and artists through care and interpretation of the collection, the presentation of exhibitions, publications, educational initiatives, programs, and artists-in-residence. The Parrish is a center for cultural engagement, an inspiration and destination for the region, the nation, and the world.

About Toni Ross
Ross is intrigued by the intersection of diverse objects and materials, especially those that defy logic. These concepts are often represented by fine threads that bind powerful, weighty forms. In Permanent Transience, the artist creates a juxtaposition of materials through an installation of sculpted straw bales that intersect and envelop three massive on-site boulders.

The Parrish Road Show, an offsite creative summer series, takes place each year in August and features temporary projects by East End artists. Now in its third year, Parrish Road Show is designed to deeply connect creativity to everyday life by presenting exhibitions and programs at unexpected places—from public parks to historic sites—across the region. Century Arts Foundation Curator of Special Projects Andrea Grover states, “Road Show aims to broaden the traditional understanding of the function of an art museum by bringing art outside and into the community.” Parrish Road Show also has included related public programs like an art historical bike tour, outdoor movies, guided meditation, local food tastings, and live music.
