The mission of the Brooks-Park Arts and Nature Center is to experience the beauty of the natural world while celebrating the artistic legacies of James Brooks (1906-1992) and Charlotte Park (1918-2010) through the restoration of their home and studios and the woodlands surrounding them. Located in the Springs section of East Hampton, New York, the center will focus on inventive and inclusive educational programming, arts-related activities, and the discovery, research, and experience of its eleven undisturbed acres of natural habitat, bringing focus to these two acclaimed artists, the unique community in which they lived and worked, and the trail system that runs through parts of the property.

Charlotte Park and James Brooks were both abstract painters whose works
were vital to the development of Abstract Expressionism.
