Spring 2022 Exhibitions

Two Centuries of Long Island Women Artists, 1800-2000.

On view March 3, 2022- September 4, 2022, this exhibition aims to provide a survey of the history of women artists on Long Island, exploring and emphasizing their significance, which has reverberated far beyond this region. By focusing an exhibition entirely on women’s contributions to art history in this region, from Brooklyn to Montauk, over 200 years, this project provides an enormous opportunity to provide a new fuller, richer accounting of women’s prolific and ever-changing impacts.

Atoms to Cosmos: The Story of Brookhaven National Laboratory. Originally scheduled to open in March, 2020, this ambitious exhibition will run from April 22, 2022- October 16, 2022 and will invite audiences to explore the social, scientific, and technological history of one of Long Island’s most important and internationally-influential modern institutions since 1947, Brookhaven National Laboratory. The Lab operates as a United States Department of Energy national laboratory at the forefront of crucial scientific research and development. As one of Suffolk County’s leading employers and a vital economic and cultural center with a long, complex, often misunderstood, and sometimes controversial past, BNL’s story will have enormous audience appeal. In partnership with the Lab, LIM will tell the important BNL story to our visitors through a combination of more than 150 artifacts, historic photographs, film, and interactive components.

Long Road to Freedom: Surviving Slavery on Long Island

Based on the 2019 exhibition of the same name, the publication written by LIM’s Curator Jonathan M. Olly, Ph.D., focuses on the experiences of people of color from the 17th to 19th centuries. The five-chapter publication explores: how slavery operated, how African Americans resisted bondage, navigated the era of emancipation, and built communities in the decades after slavery, from Brooklyn to the Hamptons.
