You’re Invited: 150 Years of Parties & Picnics in East Hampton

This exhibit explores the celebratory exploits of our East End hamlet, from Main Street Promenades, simple date nights at the cinema, to family weekends at the beach – the fabled summer happenings of East Hampton are brought to life through a rare collection of fashionably curated vignettes of costumes, and never before seen objects, including amazing textiles, and images of a partiful past!

“The inspiration for the exhibition,” said Chief Curator Richard Barons, “was that the East Hampton Historical Society is in possession of an extensive collection of period garments, but has never had an exhibit that focuses on our vast costume holdings; we sought to rectify this omission with a summer exhibition.” The current exhibition honors this wondrous wardrobe of fashionable attire, accessories and artifacts, curated into historical vignettes – both real and contrived – that celebrate a summer community that loved to party!
