Parrish Art Museum members were invited to join for an exhibition preview and reception for “Simón Vega: Tropical Space Castaways,” “Across the Avenues: Fairfield Porter in New York,” and “Beyond the Horizon: Interpretations of the Landscape from Women in the Permanent Collection” on Saturday, February 24.

The event included a talk with artist Simón Vega, moderated by Corinne Erni, Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art and Education.

Salvadoran artist Simón Vega creates drawings, objects, sculptural installations, and happenings inspired by the self-made informal architecture, local market stands, and vendor carts found in the streets and beaches of Central America. At the Parrish, Vega presents works that examine the lasting effects of colonization and the Cold War in Central America, including rovers, space capsules, suits made of repurposed materials, and photographs documenting his projects. Vega will engage the community and students in public programs and workshops.

Vega’s show will run through June 30.
