Join us for a docent-led tour of this 16 acre reserve and sculpture garden in East Hampton, NY featuring pieces from Buckminster Fuller, Yoko Ono and Willem de Kooning.

Highlights of the tour:

  • Sculpture is composed of beads hand cut from cedar trees woven into textiles and mounted onto a structure creating a covered pathway
  • Chess set by Yoko Ono where all the pieces are white
  • Large fiberglass dome that invites guests to view the gardens from the inside
  • The human-scale bamboo pavilion that synthesizes the essence of the artist’s local fishing community

About the event:

LongHouse Reserve inspires living with art in all its forms. Founder Jack Lenor Larsen (1927-2020), internationally known textile designer, author, and collector, created a modernist home and garden to capture color, ideas, innovation, change, and reinvention. The 16-acre sculpture garden and nature reserve boasts thousands of species of plant life and as many as 60 works of art, including new works this season by Steven Ladd and William Ladd, who created Right Here, Right Now, representing their practice in love and kindness; Taiwan’s Cheng Tsung Feng’s Fish Trap VI, a pavilion and portal dedicated to his local heritage; Moko Fukuyama’s Hell Gate Keepers, Fitzhugh Karol’s Friendship, his group of immense totems, honoring the soul of trees; Germany’s Alexander Polzin’s tree-shaped homage to the siren Parthenope, and Bjorn Amelan’s sumi ink paintings that summon evocative language and stories. Permanent favorites in the collection include works by Buckminster Fuller, Yoko Ono, and Willem de Kooning.

Please note:  The garden is in East Hampton, NY and is not accessible by public transportation.
