YES, last year the museum’s grounds, exhibitions and new online programs offered a lift to the whole community in a time of need. This year we welcomed record-breaking numbers of art lovers to the Warhol/Belle Epoque exhibitions. Every day, walkers and runners circle our drive and hike our trails. Students from across Long Island are learning on-site or virtually from our nationally recognized educators. Our message of culture in the community is reaching thousands more than ever before.
YES, the need for what we offer grew. We opened three new exhibitions, including the first show on Long Island entirely devoted to art by women. We expanded online activities and embarked on bold new initiatives, such as a majestic drive-through lantern festival, orchestral concerts and an auction that gave many new collectors their first taste of the pleasure of acquiring great art. We opened our gates ever wider for all to gain the benefits of a world-class cultural institution right here in our neighborhood.
YES, these initiatives are impossible without your generous support. Federal-aid programs helped keep us going, but are no longer available. That makes your gift so important to help us deliver exhibitions of substance, concerts, films, lectures, art classes for learners of all ages and abilities, family programs, school visits and activities for youth on autism spectrum and adults with memory loss. With your help we can do even more to inspire the next generation of Long Island’s art and nature lovers.
SAY YES to the 2021 Community Appeal. Your generosity is vital to the Museum’s mission of bringing the joy of art and culture to people of all ages and backgrounds. We hope we can count on your support.
