7th Annual LIMarts Members’ Exhibition Every Day: Transforming Crisis into Art

The Long Island Museum is pleased to announce the 7th Annual LIMarts Members’ Exhibition, Every Day: Transforming Crisis into Art  (12/18/20 – 2/14/21).

This has been an unprecedented and uncertain time for all of us. What has your “every day” looked like? How has it changed? How have you been spending your time? Has every day been the same or are you finding ways to make your days feel different? What have you been doing to cope or perhaps you’re not just coping but thriving? 

We will be presenting this exhibition virtually on the Long Island Museum website and across the LIM’s social media.  The Museum is committed to promoting and supporting its artist members during these challenging times and will NOT retain a commission from any work sold due to this exhibition; however, we ask that artists be responsible for handling their own sales. The LIM will act as a liaison between interested buyers and artists.  As always, this opportunity is open to LIMarts members only.

NEW THIS YEAR!  Due to the virtual nature of this exhibition, there are no size restrictions.  The entry deadline is November 27, 2020.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please email Alexandria D’Auria at adauria@longislandmuseum.org.
