The Islip Arts Council is dedicated to leadership, advocacy, and excellence in the arts. We present, produce, and promote culturally responsive, high quality programs in varied artistic disciplines for our diverse population. Our 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. Mrs. Barbash also brought the NY Philharmonic to Heckscher State Park more than forty years ago.
