The Islip Art Museum is the leading exhibition space for contemporary art on Long Island. The New York Times has called the Museum the "best facility of its kind outside Manhattan." An ambitious exhibition program features contemporary art by national and international artists, as well as emerging artists from local communities.
The Museum presents five exhibitions a year in the galleries of the Brookwood Hall mansion, a landmark estate on Long Island's south shore. Exhibitions are organized to reflect issues and concerns in the current art world.
The Museum also present lectures, fine art classes for adults and children, and workshops and tours for all age groups. The Museum Store features one-of-kind craft items, art work, gifts and unusual stationery and fine jewelry.
The Museum is a division of the Town of Islip Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs and is managed by the Islip Arts Council, a non-profit arts agency with offices in the Brookwood Hall complex. Visit: www.islipartscouncil.org
