A Message from the Director: The seismic shift caused by the pandemic almost ended the dream that began in 1955. Thanks to you, it didn’t happen! Your support over the past two years has been nothing short of amazing. To simplify giving, we have introduced the Automatic Recurring Gifts Program (ARGP).
The Art League of Long Island brings the artists out of its studios and directly to the public at a Pop-Up Art Walk at Walt Whitman Shops on Saturday, October 19 from 11am to 3pm.
