SAC Public Art Project: Outdoor Sculpture and Art Installation
Artists include Louise Bourgeois (courtesy of Hauser & Wirth), Hal Buckner, Saskia Friedrich, Alice Hope, Bryan Hunt, Laurie Lambrecht, and Steve Miller.
This special installation on the east end west lawn of SAC is a collaboration between Artistic Director Amy Kirwin and Artist Eric Fischl and reflects both nature and the new normal of life during a pandemic. The intention is not only to offer an open-air experience that welcomes guests to roam freely and safely, but to draw attention to artists that use nature and humanity as an inspiration for their work.
This project will enhance our beautiful grounds for the public to enjoy while taking advantage of the property. Combining both sculpture and installation makes for a dynamic use of the landscape, and the artists chosen all have works that will be in conversation with and draw attention to the stunning natural surroundings and existing sculptural features.

Purchase PAUSE AT HOME Portraits to Benefit Hamptons Arts Network
The Hamptons Arts Network is working with the artist Philippe Cheng to take commissions of Pause At Home—family, individual, or essential worker portraits—as an important record of our community living through the COVID-19 pandemic. A portfolio of all commissioned portraits will become part of the collections of East Hampton Historical Society, Eastville Community Historical Society, and Southampton History Museum as a means to gather and preserve information for future researchers. The option to pay for a portrait of a health worker, essential worker, civil servant, or a gift for another person or family, is available. Proceeds, after production expenses, go directly to support the 19 members organizations of the Hamptons Arts Network, a consortium of not-for-profit organizations working together to create a unified arts community of the Hamptons.
