The Islip Arts Council is dedicated to leadership, advocacy and excellence in the arts by presenting, producing and promoting culturally responsive, high quality programs for diverse populations in varied artistic disciplines.
The Islip Arts Council has been promoting cultural excellence for over three decades. Throughout the years the organization has expanded an existing series of free concerts and created new cultural programs to serve the Town of Islip and Long Island at large. The Islip Arts Council provides a diverse audience with activities which encompass both presentation and service to the Arts field. Its presentations cover a variety of disciplines ranging from fine classical music to young persons' programs to avant garde performance art. A few of the programs that the Islip Arts Council is proud to offer are the Discover Music Series, Jazz Fest, Teeny Awards, Master Class Schedule and the inspiring Annual Free Philharmonic Concert in the Park. The Islip Arts Council is proud to be the managing agency of the Islip Art Museum. The Islip Art Museum has been referred to as "the finest contemporary art facility of its kind outside of Manhattan," by the New York Times. With a merger of the visual arts and the performing arts the Islip Arts Council can now offer the public a first class cultural arts program.
