Our Story

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

My 5 yr old has been learning and recreating some of the greats :) today was Picasso.
I have been visiting the Islip Art Museum for many years. Never been sorry. My group has exhibited in the history room and felt apart of the family. When you receive the Town of Islip Recreation Booklets, take note of the large section devoted to the Art Museum, their exhibits and programs. Keep up the good work.
Exhilarating! Brilliant! Must see!!!
Announcing the opening of "The Majesty of Tibet" – January 15, 2019 at Islip Art Museum.

There will be a formal tea ceremony; a celebration of Chinese New Year with music and dance, and traditional foods. For further information, please contact Lynda A. Moran, Executive Director of IAM at 631-224-5420.
Islip Art Museum is a South Shore gem!
What a wonderful reception for The Art of Meditation exhibition curated by Seung Lee. The exhibit itself exuded an ebb and flow arrangement and I was so pleased that my recent photo-liminal image Morning On Main is pART of the visual tide. The current stARTed as I approached the Islip Art Museum as friends were all arriving and some were leaving. It was great bumping into Ali Rufrano and Sandi Daniel who also had work in the exhibit. I knew both from fotofoto gallery and it was so good to catch up with them. The diverse group of artists brought a wide array of visitors and I was most excited by discussion with Adel Gorgy Contemporary Fine Art Photography who has work in this show and I would love to talk with him again. Most fun was seeing Ray Burns, composer and conductor who had been pART of Bay Shore School District when my own kids were in school and meeting his lovely wife...and discovering that we share special fondness and friendship for Lynda A Moran. I could go on and on but I will just end by saying that this is an definitely exhibition worth checking out! Kudos all around!
