Parrish Art Presents Works By Carmen Herrera In The Museum’s South Meadow

The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill presents the arrival of significant works by Carmen Herrera in the museum’s South Meadow. Opening on May 25, the exhibition, “Carmen Herrera: Estructuras Monumentales,” will feature four large-scale structures in bold colors, offering visitors an immersive experience of Herrera’s hard-edged work.

The outdoor sculptures, first envisioned by Herrera in the 1960s as sketches and paintings, with the idea of the works eventually becoming sculptures, will be on view through December 8. Placed in the Museum’s South Meadow, they can be enjoyed from afar by passersby on Montauk Highway and on Meadow pathways for Museum visitors to experience up close. 

These significant sculptures from the Estatera of Carmen Herre represent the culmination of Herrera’s lifelong artistic journey. Herrera, who gained international recognition late in life, died in 2022 at the age of 106. Her legacy lives on through her groundbreaking creations as an abstract painter and sculptor.

“The Parrish has a proud history of celebrating women abstractionists who have shaped the course of art history. With ‘Carmen Herrera: Estructuras Monumentales,’ the Museum continues this tradition, offering visitors a rare opportunity to experience the brilliance of Herrera’s visionary work,” said Mónica Ramírez-Montagut, Executive Director, Parrish Art Museum. “It has been a dream of mine to be able to provide Carmen Herrera’s Estructuras the incomparable backdrop of the Parrish’s Meadow, and it’s thrilling that our donors embraced this vision, and the museum team made this a reality for everyone on the East End to enjoy.”
