Located in East Hampton, New York, LongHouse Reserve is a sixteen acre garden with established lawns, ornamental borders, plant collections and outdoor sculpture, planned by the internationally recognized textile designer, Jack Lenor Larsen. Mr. Larsen, along with the recommendations of the LHR Art Committee, has assembled a collection of over 85 sculptures for the gardens. LongHouse Reserve was established in 1991 and reflects founder Jack Lenor Larsen’s desire to encourage creativity in gardening and in collecting and every day living with art.
Each year LongHouse Reserve presents major exhibitions in both the pavilion and the gardens including our expanding Sculpture in the Gardens program. A collection of 80 sculptures for the gardens has been assembled including works of glass by Dale Chihuly, ceramics by Toshiko Takaezu, and bronze by Willem de Kooning. Works by John Chamberlain, Bernar Venet, Ossorio, Claus Bury, Yoko Ono, Sol LeWitt, Pavel Opocensky, and Takashi Soga are also on view, while the installation of a Fly’s Eye Dome designed by Buckminster Fuller adds interesting scale and dimension.
