DESIGNERS OF FINE FRAMING SINCE 1957
The Huntington Historical Society’s Soldiers and Sailors Memorial building was built as the town library in 1892. After the library moved to its current location at the other end of Main Street in 1958, the building, still owned by the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Association, was used by the Huntington school district. From 1969 on it became home to the Town Historian. In 2000, the Association donated the building to the Huntington Historical Society. The Society undertook an ambitious eight year restoration project and re-opened it as a museum in 2008.
From Swamp to Park: The Evolution of Heckscher Park
Description: Heckscher Park has been a highlight of Huntington Village for over one hundred years. The eighteen acre park has attracted locals and tourists alike, providing space for recreation, culture, and relaxation. The park is named after August Heckscher, who purchased the land in 1906 and provided funding for its eventual development into a public park and art museum, known as the Heckscher Museum of Art. But just who was August Heckscher? How was the area transformed from swampy farmland to the landscaped park we know today? What do thimbles have to do with any of it? This exhibit traces the exciting history of our favorite local park.
"I create mixed media art with paper, paint, ink, and upcycled materials. My art is my outlet. The process is therapeutic. The series for the Art Walk includes a few of my portraits created using many many layers. I also included shoe pieces in this body of work. What better way to celebrate Huntington’s Art Walk… with a few super fun sneakers! And lastly there are some beautiful sunflower pieces. To me the sunflowers represent strength and positivity. I want my work to make people smile.” -Nicole Franz

Stephanie Angelo is a visual artist born on Long Island, New York, and raised in Connecticut. History and contemporary events are two main themes that infiltrate her work. Traditional motifs are used in conjunction with the bright flat colors and the bold lines of the pop artists, combining older styles and forms of art with one that is distinctly modern.
Now celebrating its 59th year, the Huntington Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization which enriches the quality of life of Long Islanders with programs and services that address the needs and interests of artists, cultural organizations and the community.
Photographer and author John Lazzaro traveled the state, capturing what's left of such places before they are inevitably swept away by time. These sites, ranging from the Catskills' once-vibrant vacation destinations to Long Island’s melancholy psychiatric centers, reveal deeper social, cultural, and political changes that led to their decay. These abandoned hospitals, schools, churches, railways, and estates offer us a view into a past rapidly dissolving before it disappears completely.
