Artists have been drawn to the Hamptons for decades and the art scene remains lively with many influential artists living in the area and continuing to show their work. This is the first summer to visit the new Parrish Museum along Montauk Highway in Water Mill; it showcases the story of America’s most enduring and influential artists’ colony on Eastern Long Island. The house and studio of the legendary artists Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner in the village of Springs in East Hampton invite visitors to put on little slippers and walk upon his paint-splattered studio floor. Nearby, Green River cemetery is Pollock and Krasner’s final resting place along with numerous East End artists with unique headstones that are works of art themselves.
