WATER MILL, NY.- The Board of Trustees of the Parrish Art Museum has elected Mary E. Frank as President and Interim Chair, effective January 1, 2019. “We are all proud and pleased to welcome Mary as our new leader, and anticipate great things in the Museum’s future,” said Parrish Director Terrie Sultan. “Mary has a longstanding commitment to cultural philanthropy and is also a noted art historian. The experience and expertise she brings will be instrumental in helping us continue to grow and fully realize our great promise.”

Continuing in their current leadership roles are James Freeman, Sandy Perlbinder, and Alexandra Stanton, Vice Presidents; Jay Goldberg, Treasurer; and Timothy Davis, Secretary. Outgoing Chair Fred M. Seegal will continue to serve on the Board as Chair Emeritus.

“In Fred’s six years of service to the Parrish, the Museum moved into our new facility in Water Mill, enhanced our programs and services, and made our first, foundational steps to becoming the new Parrish. We are so grateful for his leadership,” noted Sultan.

In reflecting over his tenure as Chair, Seegal remarked, “I am proud of the many accomplishments of the Parrish over the last six years and was so fortunate to work with Terrie Sultan and her staff as well as our Board of Trustees. I am confident that the Museum is extremely well positioned to continue serving the cultural needs of the entire East End community.”

Mary Frank joined the Parrish Board in 2017, following decades as a friend and supporter of the Museum. Frank brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to her position at the Parrish. A noted art historian with a Ph.D from Princeton and a Master’s degree from the University of Miami, she specializes in the art of Renaissance Venice. Frank is a trustee of the American Academy in Rome and serves on the Advisory Board of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice. She served on the board of Save Venice for twelve years, during which time she founded the Rosand Library and Study Center. Especially germane to her future at the Parrish is her service on the board of the Miami Art Museum from 1994 to 2011. As President there from 2006 to 2009 she oversaw the selection of Herzog and de Meuron to design a new home for the museum (now the Perez Art Museum Miami).

“I am gratified to have the opportunity to apply my love of art and diverse board experience to my position at the Parrish,” said Frank. “As the Museum settles into its sixth year in its landmark Herzog and de Meuron home, I look forward to increasing our audience and spheres of influence in the local community and beyond.”

The Museum's exhibition and programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the property taxpayers from the Southampton Union Free School District and the Tuckahoe Common School District.
