2019 Schedule of Exhibitions – Islip Art Museum
Islip Arts Council, the managing agency of the Islip Art Museum (IAM), is planning a year of collaborative art exhibits exploring many different forms of art, cultures, and media.
IAM, a Contemporary art museum that is housed in historic Brookwood Hall, is a landmark in the Town of Islip. In 2019 IAM will continue introducing unique art exhibits and programming to the community by developing an Artist-in-Residency with an internationally recognized Long Island artist, Seung Lee. This collaboration shines a light on the museum’s capacity to attract a larger audience beyond the Town of Islip and engage in a more global experience.
In 2019, the Museum is proud to open the year with The Majesty of Tibet: A Solo Exhibition of Chinese Art by Yu Hanyu – January 15 – March 30, 2019. This exhibit is curated by Gan Yu. Co-curators: Mary O’Malley and Stephanie Lee.
