The acclaimed artist exhibit is on view in our brand-new gallery June 15 through June 27.

PLEASE DONATE & CREATE
In 2013 Mayor Peter Cavallaro asked residents for their assistance in creating an arts council for the Westbury community. Mayor Cavallaro envisioned Westbury Arts as the cultural centerpiece of the Village and as the premier destination for arts and culture on Long Island. In just seven years, Westbury Arts has grown and transformed in ways we could not have imagined. Now we start a new chapter with the opening of our building in the heart of the Village. Our new home is a place where all are welcome — an oasis where artistic expression brings us together, stirs our imagination and soothes our soul. We need your help to continue our mission to develop arts and cultural programs that connect, educate and inspire our community. Your donation will help us realize our vision of a community where arts and culture are valued and instill a sense of belonging and pride. Together we create Westbury!

Thank you so much for your consideration as we look forward to a bright new future! The Westbury Arts mural project was made possible, in part, with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Huntington Arts Council.
