Richard Move and his multidisciplinary dance and theater company MoveOpolis! greeted guests to the party.

The Parrish Art Museum’s sold-out Midsummer Party on Saturday night raised $1.25 million and attracted some 1,000 guests.

The event honored Inga Maren Otto, a philanthropist, and Katharina Otto-Bernstein, a filmmaker and author.

The party took place in the museum’s galleries and on the terrace and porches of the building. Ron Wendt design took Jennifer Bartlett’s “Amagansett Diptych #1” paintings as the inspiration for his table design and the overall decor, using the colors and grid as a recurring motif.

Dessert and dancing, the features of the “after 10” party, took place in the museum’s theater. Lounge areas were also set up throughout the museum, where guests could also visit the galleries.
