Welcome To Long Island Arts Alliance, Inc.

The Arts are not a luxury. They’re a necessity. And since 2002 Long Island Arts Alliance has been a driver of that necessity. Long Island Arts Alliance (LIAA) boasts a membership of more than 150, including all major Long Island arts institutions and arts education organizations, working artists, and universities. Among LIAA’s early initiatives were economic studies to document the impact of the arts on our economy. Today, LIAA sponsors events to provide Long Island’s arts leadership with programs based on its core mission of Creativity, Community, Collaboration and Education in the Arts. LIAA programs include Scholar-Artist Awards, Arts Management Forums and the LI Arts Map. The Alliance regularly promotes our region’s offerings in arts, culture and history, as well as provides professional development for arts managers, and exhibit opportunities for local artists.

Marian Conway, Ph.D. is LIAA’s current Chair, and former chairs are John R. Bransfield Jr., and Raymond Jansen. The Board includes key members of the arts and business leadership in our region. LIAA is organized to realize its statement of mission and message to the world - Long Island is World Class. Second to None.
