“Huntington is a special place – a town of urban sophistication with vignettes of small town USA and colonial America. As a city boy, I’ve always appreciated the buses, commerce, municipal parking lots, cafes and trendy shops as well as the trees, shoreline and family atmosphere. As an artist, I’ve always felt welcome in Huntington and the Huntington Arts Council has provided Long Island artists of all forms & disciplines with support for over 53 years.”
