Physically Distant But Socially Strong

Follow @SouthamptonArtsCenter on Instagram and Facebook for Fun, Interactive, and Informative Content.


Every Monday we will highlight a local business in operation now whether in person, by phone or online. Catena’s, Hildreth’s and Topiaire Flower Shop are among many community-owned businesses ready to serve you, now and always.


Tuesdays are all about the artists of the East End and beyond. Whether taking over our Instagram feed, sharing their new projects, or creating works that are making an impact on our community, we want to shine a light on their accomplishments. Additionally, the featured artist of the day will join us on Instagram Live at 4 PM Eastern with  SAC Artistic Director Amy Kirwin to offer an insiders tour of their studio, share what they are working on, and take questions from the audience.  Look for Paton Miller, Cindy Pease Roe, Franco Cuttica, Alice Hope and more in coming weeks.


On Wednesday we focus on the mind and body. We will connect with partners from the past, present and future including Eddie Stern, Bob Roth of the David Lynch Foundation, Bandier, Meditation DJ Daniel Lauter, the Shou Sugi Ban House, and the Wellness Foundation. Not only will we continue to present our own virtual programs but we will share what our friends are offering online for all to take advantage of.


Because you can’t mess with perfection, we will share our own memories as part of this longstanding social media tradition, from Peter Marino’s Counterpoint, to the Silent Disco Outdoor Dance Parties, National Geographic Photo Ark by Joel Sartore, and SummerFest – there are so many wonderful things to look back on and remember fondly. And it will only remind us of the many incredible things we have to look forward to.


Fridays are dedicated to film recommendations that can be screened from the comfort of your homes. From moving documentaries to Mother’s Day favorites, popular films we have shown in the past, and others we had planned to show. We hope to be able to serve as a guide for what you will be streaming over the weekend.


There are so many incredible restaurants in our community. Each Saturday we will spotlight a different local restaurant offering delivery and take-away meals.  We will also help curate an enjoyable evening at home with some recommended entertainment or thematic music to accompany the cuisine featured that day.


Backyard dance parties, collaborative crafts, excursions in the car…Sunday is all about fun with the family. Each week we will share an idea to help inspire your weekend activities with the family, whether virtual or in real life.
