Long Island’s Best: Young Artists at The Heckscher Museum is the only juried exhibition on Long Island that offers high school students the opportunity to show their work in a museum.

Each year, students in grades 9 through 12 are invited to create a work of art inspired by artwork shown in the Museum during the school year and submit to this prestigious juried exhibition. Hundreds of works of art are submitted from schools across Nassau and Suffolk counties and approximately 80 are chosen for display in the exhibition.

The Rains are Changing Fast highlights artwork recently acquired by The Heckscher Museum of Art alongside a selection of key works long held in the Museum’s collection. For over a century, the Heckscher has been collecting and presenting art that explores the landscapes and social issues of its place and time. This exhibition, which takes its title from a 2021 video by Christine Sciulli, features new and beloved works of art that together reveal the diverse ways in which artists contend with environmental and cultural change. Created over a span of 175 years by some fifty artists, the works are united by shared engagements with landscape, allegory, and abstraction. Some, like Richard Mayhew’s Pescadero (2014) or George Inness’s The Pasture, Durham, Connecticut (c. 1879), present luminous, if precarious, visions of the American landscape. Others, including Deborah Buck’s They Had Stars in Their Eyes (2020) and Dorothy Dehner’s Landscape (1976), employ modes of abstraction that speak to issues of gender and materiality. The resulting visual conversations emphasize the Museum’s ongoing commitment to social concerns, environmental issues, and Long Island’s diverse communities.

Join us Sundays in April for Jazz at the Huntington Historical Society’s Conklin Barn! Pianist, keyboardist, composer, and educator, Lewis received a Grammy nomination in 1995. He has performed across the USA and Europe with Joe Lovano, Wycliffe Gordon, Ravi Coltrane, Ribot, and many others. As a jazz historian, you might have caught him in the acclaimed documentary "Chasing Trane". Lewis will perform solo piano and lead a conversation about what this thing is that we call "Jazz". This is a free event! Registration is required, and space is limited. This program is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Huntington Arts Council.
