Oyster Bay Town Councilman Tom Hand invites residents to enjoy the Town’s 46th Annual Rotational Art Exhibit Program. The unique program integrates arts and community and allows local artists to display their work in local libraries, banks, government offices and local businesses on a monthly “rotational” basis.
“Through this program, local businesses around the Town help to spread a passion for the arts by joining in and supporting local artists. This provides business patrons with the pleasure of viewing artwork in a setting they normally wouldn’t,” stated Councilman Hand. “Local businesses that participate in the Rotational Arts Exhibit program have a unique opportunity to position themselves at the intersection of industry and art, which ultimately benefits all involved. This program not only features the diverse works of new artists, but also some of the most accomplished artists from the area.”
While the 2020 schedule is set, the Town of Oyster Bay is already looking for new artists and businesses to participate in next year’s program. Beginning in the fall, novice and experienced artists alike will have a chance to see their artwork approved and entered into ‘rotation’ where it will be displayed throughout the Town of Oyster Bay in 2021.
The program is free for both artists and businesses. A complete listing of display months and locations is printed in the program’s 2020 Exhibition Schedule which is available online at www.oysterbaytown.com under the Town of Oyster Bay’s Department of Community and Youth Services. The 2020 Exhibition Schedule is also available at Town Hall South in Massapequa, at local libraries or by calling the Town of Oyster Bay’s Department of Community and Youth Services at (516) 797-7932, where residents can also get any additional information they may require about this popular program.
