The Parrish Art Museum announced today that Chris Siefert will be its deputy director. He starts his new position at the Water Mill, New York museum on July 1.
Siefert comes from the Children’s Museum in Pittsburgh, where he was its deputy director. He has also been the museum’s project manager and director of exhibits.
“The Parrish is an institution I know from my childhood, frequently visiting the museum at its previous location in Southampton with my family,” Siefert said in a statement. “I remember it as an intimate and welcoming place that fed our imaginations and allowed us to freely explore. It’s clear that sense of cultural obligation has been enhanced with the Parrish’s relocation to its extraordinary facility in Water Mill.”
