SPECIAL EVENTS



FLIGHT - THE IMMERSION PROJECT

Coming in February
Islip Arts Council will present a black box theater project IMMERSION – FLIGHT.

The immersive experience for Black History Month 2023 will include the history of flight and the Tuskegee Airmen (TAI) & MLK images, videos and voices of narration throughout the exhibit, clips from interviews with some of the Tuskegee Airmen as well as participation by other black leaders. The story of African Americans and their historic journey has helped strengthen the American Story. The immersion of the artwork on flight will be surrounding the video and will include animation, air bursts, musical add-ons and more.

To enhance the visual experience, video of clouds, Red Tail P-51s, and B-52 Bombers in flight will be projected inside the theater. We will feature artwork by local independent artists that express their view of “Flight.” Their works of art will be projected during the viewing hours of the exhibit.

Several projectors will be used to project artwork, planes and movement of flight and audible music presented by resident composer Reynard Burns, who is also a Tuskegee Airmen board member.
