DEC 2023 / The Land of Sweets - Art of the Nutcracker

Exhibition: Dec 5 - 30, 2023
Location: Islip Arts Council Gallery, Bay Shore, NY 
Special Nutcracker Ballet Performance:
Dec 10 / 2pm

The Nutcracker, Opus 71, is an 1892 two-act classical ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, set on Christmas Eve at the foot of a Christmas tree in a child's imagination. The Nutcracker is loosely based on the 1816 E.T.A. Hoffmann fantasy story “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” which is about a girl who befriends a nutcracker that comes to life on Christmas Eve and wages a battle against the evil Mouse King.

For this Open Call, Islip Arts Council asked for works related to the story - its characters, plot, scenery, and theme. 



Founded in 1974, the Islip Arts Council is dedicated to leadership, advocacy, and excellence in the arts. Our goal is to present, produce, and promote culturally responsive, high quality programs in varied artistic disciplines for our diverse Long Island community.
