Parrish Scrollathon| Water Mill, New York
Parrish Art Museum
Water Mill, New York
November 2014 - January 2015
In conjunction with the exhibition Mary Queen of the Universe, Steven and William worked with 1,100 children and adults from 16 schools and community organizations for the Parrish Scrollathon. Participants toured the exhibition and learned about how the artists make and use scrolls. They collaborated to make a group installation, as well as an individual scroll to keep, and were each photographed for a portrait mural. The collaborative scroll landscape, 1960s TV Dinner, and portraits of all participants are on display during the Parrish 2015 Student Exhibition, and are featured on the website scrollathon.com.
Support for the Parrish Scrollathon is provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, The DeWitt Wallace Fund for Youth at the Long Island Community Foundation, the Henry Buhl Foundation, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Invisible Dog Art Center, Fred and Robin Seegal, Terrie Sultan, Cara Conklin-Wingfield, and Lucien Zayan.

The publication is made possible by the generous support of The Mr. and Mrs. Raymond J. Horowitz Fund for Publications and William H. Wright II. The Parrish Scrollathon Video was co-directed, shot and edited by Casey Brooks, and co-directed and written by Antonia Bryan. Original music is by Chris Bordeaux and Casey Brooks.
