Say ‘Thank You’

The Parrish Art Museum bathed in blue light to honor frontline workers.

During these unprecedented times, most residents have a social responsibility to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by staying home and staying safe.

But that’s not an option for doctors, nurses, and other medical staff, as well as police, firefighters, grocery store employees, postal/delivery workers, gas station attendants, public transportation workers, mental health and social services workers, farmers, and countless other essential workers who are putting themselves at risk daily as they do their job.

For that reason, the Parrish Art Museum is coming together to create art to thank those who are taking risks in the community to keep everyone safe. All are welcome to send a positive message with art and take a moment to design a thank you card or two for the frontline workers in our area.

You may direct your card to a particular group, or it can be a general thank you. Let them know that their efforts and sacrifices are meaningful and appreciated.

Use any medium that you have available to create a card with your original art and a message of gratitude and either drop it off in the no-touch box on the premises of the Parrish Art Museum, 279 Montauk Highway, Water Mill, or email a copy to

Add your name and age if desired and the Parrish will highlight some of these cards on social media.
