Perfect Earth Project has been working tirelessly to transition the grounds of East End institutions be to toxin-free. This program will begin with a short talk about the Perfect Earth Project’s installation in A Sense of Place, and then Edwina von Gal will present special signs to representatives of the PRFCT toxin-free public places, including Southampton Hospital, Parrish Art Museum, Southampton Dog Run, Southampton Rose Garden, and Southampton Arts Center. Guests are also encouraged to view the works in galleries and enjoy light refreshments.
The program will conclude with a Bee House Workshop – including craft activity targeted to parents and children, using recycled and natural materials to make native Bee Hotels. This activity will educate attendees on the importance of native pollinator populations and how they can protect them in the spaces they own and visit. Reservations for the workshop can be made through Perfect Earth Project.

Presented by New York Academy of Art with Southampton Arts Center. Curated by David Kratz and Stephanie Roach, and edited by Emma Gilbey Keller. Artists and writers are always the antennae of our society, all the more so at a time as challenging as this one. They have an opportunity—some might say, a duty—to interpret this moment and imagine the world not only as it is, but also as it could be. This is the guiding challenge of the group exhibition, 2020 Vision. We asked artists, writers, and creative thinkers to consider three questions of critical importance: Our lives will never be the same, but what will change look like? What do we want to keep as we rebuild? And what must we guard against? We invited these creators to express what they saw, what they felt, and what they experienced during this time of pause and reassessment, upheaval and risk, and anxiety and uncertainty. It is our hope that 2020 Vision marks one of many beginnings in the necessary process of ‘post-traumatic growth’ and positive change for our society and our world.
