About the Huntington Arts Council

Visit the website, and sign up via this Google Form to receive their gorgeous glossy magazine to learn all about what’ the Huntington Arts Council is doing these days. The HAC has been serving the Town since 1963 when the Council formally accepted the recommendation of a committee charged by Supervisor Flynn to “consider the problems of maintaining an adequate cultural life in the expanding community complex of Huntington.” 
 

You may read the full history here. Apparently, they started with Town donated office space, phone, and support from the Recreation Department. Their first annual budget was expected to be about $500-700 raised by the Huntington community. As you can see here, here , and all over their website, the HAC has since inspired, informed and aided the growth of thousands of people and organizations across Long Island.

The Huntington Arts Council maintains a robust exhibition and program schedule in their beautiful Main Street Gallery, and are the reason the Town has a Summer Arts Festival in Heckscher Park. They are primary coordinators of Town and State arts initiatives on Long Island, serve as tremendous communicators of local arts and why they’re so important, and act as key partners to advance the arts Island-wide.
