About LongHouse Reserve

East Hampton's LongHouse Reserve is 16-acre integrated environment created by artist, collector
and world-renowned textile designer and weaver Jack Lenor Larsen (1927-2020) with a mission
to inspire living with art in all forms. Over the past two years, LongHouse has transitioned from
a founder-led to board and staff-led public institution, serving the community with vast open
space, programs in art, nature, and wellness, providing a sanctuary for Long Island and beyond.
The sculpture garden, featuring more than 60 outdoor works—including permanent collection
works by Yoan Capote, Buckminster Fuller, Yoko Ono, Sui Jinguao, and Willem de Kooning,
and seasonal loans from artists such as Wyatt Kahn, Maren Hassinger, and Ai Wei
Wei—encourages exploration and contemplation for new and repeat visitors alike. As of this
year, the garden is fully open to the public for education and enjoyment, with a next chapter of
activating Larsen’s home (a modernist structure based on the Shinto Shrine at Ise) and the
extensive collections.

LongHouse Reserve inspires and empowers visitors of all ages to see and think in new ways, and
to incorporate art and design into their lives, invoking an ongoing act of creation that is renewed
by the diverse communities drawn to its values and purpose. Whether visitors return to see a
favorite garden or walk the grounds in search of a new installation, LongHouse is always
changing and always new.

LongHouse Reserve is open April – December, Wednesdays through Sundays from 12:30pm
until 5pm. A Membership allows you to visit LongHouse Reserve throughout the season.
General admission is $20, with reduced price tickets for seniors and students, and no charge for
children, veterans or active-duty personnel. More information is available at www.longhouse.org.

  • Historic Artists' Home and Studios, A program of The National Trust for Historic Preservation

    Affiliate Member

    The Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios program (HAHS) is a coalition of 55 museums that were the homes and working studios of American artists. “Being welcomed into the Affiliate Membership of the Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios network is balm for the soul of LongHouse, where we finding our way just two years after the passing of our founder, Jack Lenor Larsen (1927-2020). Jack once said, “Conforming must be terribly dull. I never learned to do it,” and thus built a modernist version of the Ise Shrine smack in East Hampton and planted a 16-acre garden of color and ideas and birds around it, all to enlarge his scope of work as a master of color, craft, and a master weaver. As stewards of his legacy—a program of both preservation and invention, attention to the past with a view to the future—we will enjoy support and guidance from our HAHS colleagues." – Carrie Rebora Barratt, Director, LongHouse Reserve


After a morning at the beach, this garden is a wonderful, peaceful respite from all the activity and traffic. Gorgeous landscaping and hidden sculptural surprises in every nook, fun paths to walk down and cleverly placed benches on which to sit and enjoy it all. The friendly staff member at the gate offered us scavenger hunt maps for the kids as well as an informative introduction to the garden. We all very much enjoyed the trip.

This place is an absolute gem. Incredible nature, landscaping, art, and furniture spread out over a sprawling estate. We brought our nieces there (7 & 8) and they went nuts! Best part is that kids are free. If you in the area, or even if you have to drive an hour, you have to check it out. Just check their calendar to make sure they are open, as they keep inconsistent hours.
