Curated by Franklin Hill Perrell of the Artful Circle
with special thanks to Debra Wells
SPLIA’s latest exhibit, #MyLongIslandLandmarks, is inspired by an Instagram hashtag. We reached out to the community asking for depictions of favorite Long Island landmarks so that people would think about Long Island as a place of history and cultural connection. What resulted was a wonderful assemblage of well-known historic “landmarks” as well as Long Island places that, on the surface, may seem ordinary but become meaningful once their stories are known. SPLIA then invited Franklin Hill Perrell of the Artful Circle to curate an exhibit that expands on the theme. Included are stand-out submissions to our hashtag invitation as well as selected works by local artists who use Long Island as their subject.
Open Thursdays through Sundays 12pm-4pm
