Mary Frank has replaced Fred Seegal as chair

New Leader For Parrish Board

The Parrish Art Museum’s Board of Trustees has elected Mary Frank as its new president and interim chairwoman.

Frank, who joined the museum board in 2017, is an art historian specializing in Renaissance Venice with a doctorate from Princeton and a master’s degree from the University of Miami. A trustee of the American Academy in Rome and a member of the board of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, Frank also served on the board of the Miami Art Museum from 1994 to 2011 and was president from 2006 to 2009.

James Freeman, Sandy Perlbinder, and Alexandra Stanton will remain on the board as vice presidents, while Jay Goldberg and Timothy Davis will continue as treasurer and secretary, respectively. Outgoing chairman Fred Seegal will continue to serve on the board as chairman emeritus.

During Seegal’s six years of leadership, the Parrish moved into its new facility in Water Mill and enhanced programs and services, Parrish Director Terrie Sultan said in a press release.

“We are all proud and pleased to welcome Mary as our new leader, and anticipate great things in the museum’s future,” Sultan said in the release. “The experience and expertise she brings will be instrumental in helping us continue to grow and fulyl realize our great promise.”
