THE PETER MARINO ART FOUNDATION

 

‘the first contemporary pieces I ever bought were two small polaroids by lucas samaras that I saw at pace gallery, which was right around the corner from my first job, at SOM. I remember the trauma of writing my first check to an art gallery,’ says peter marino while discussing the origins of his extensive art collection, which he has been building for more than 40 years now. marino decided to establish a permanent home for his collection after the very popular response he got while showing some of his artworks at the southampton arts center in 2019. situated next door to the arts center, the peter marino art foundation occupies the former rogers memorial library building, which dates back to the 19th century. the architect spent nearly three years restoring the historical façade and redesigning the interior spaces, transforming them into more than 8,000 square feet of exhibition spaces spread over two levels. read our full interview with peter marino and see more images of the foundation here.
