LongHouse Reserve Rites of Spring 2023 Celebration
Celebrate Rites of Spring 2023 at LongHouse Reserve, East Hampton’s beloved 16-acre sculpture garden. As is tradition, nearly one million daffodils and rare bulb plants will be in bloom to welcome back the local community. On display will be new works of art including two large scale sculptures by Maren Hassinger and three by Wyatt Kahn. Popular permanent collection pieces by Buckminster Fuller, Sol Lewitt, Yoko Ono, Toshiko Takaezu, and many others remain on view, along with sculptures from Fitzhugh Karol, Moko Fukuyama, William and Steven Ladd, Alexander Polzin, and Ai Weiwei.
Friends and families are invited to weave branches from the garden with Maren Hassinger as she creates her site-specific Monuments. LongHouse is a closed-loop garden, meaning that all of its plant materials remain onsite. You are welcome to assist the artist, making winter branches into a work of art. Bring your own pruners! Visitors will enjoy Wyatt Kahn’s three corten steel sculptures–Parade, Painting the Painter, Umbrella–most recently on view in City Hall Park, now at LongHouse in a new partnership with the Public Art Fund.
On April 9, Easter Sunday, come for a stroll in your Easter Bonnet around the gardens. LongHouse Founder, Jack Lenor Larsen, collected hats – what better way to honor his legacy than by parading in your bonnet? Easter treats will be available for kids of all ages.
