The Islip Arts Council is dedicated to leadership, advocacy, and excellence in the arts. They present, produce, and promote culturally responsive, high quality programs in varied artistic disciplines for a diverse population. Their goal is to facilitate these programs in response to the needs of the Long Island community.
The Islip Arts Council was created in 1974. Two years later, Lillian Barbash was named chairperson, and the Islip Arts Council was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit arts organization.
Islip Arts Council presents free concerts that feature professional musicians and local favorites of the highest caliber at venues that include Bayard Cutting Arboretum, the Bay Shore Band Shell, Brookwood Hall, the LI Maritime Museum, and the Westfield Mall.
The IAC School of Cultural Arts offers fine art, music, and yoga classes for adults and children, all taught by professionals in their fields.
