BOMB Magazine and the Parrish Art Museum hosted a reading at artist Toni Ross’s large-scale installation, “Permanent Transience” on the grounds of Marders Garden Center. BOMB editor Betsy Sussler welcomed a standing room only crowd that included Parrish director Terrie Sultan. Bob Morris recalled mentor Edward Albee before reading a new meditation on his youth. Jacqueline Weld read from her spirited biography of Peggy Guggenheim. Greg Hedberg described his recent discoveries about Degas. Candace Bushnell performed a spirited a cappella reading from a new story — the hilarious escapades of the daughter of an over-sexed reality star. Betsy Sussler closed the afternoon from a not yet published family saga. Local Sweet’tauk Lemonade was served.
The Parrish Art Museum’s off-site series, Parrish Road Show presents “Permanent Transience,” an installation by Toni Ross remains on view at Marders, 120 Snake Hollow Road, Bridgehampton.
