Twin Peeks:

Scenes Seen Twice, Paintings & Photographs

——
(March 5 – August 1, 2021)
Art Museum, Main Gallery
————————
Chosen entirely from LIM’s art collection, Twin Peeks will present side-by-side views of nearly 60 paintings, from the 1830s to the present, placed beside photographs of the same or similar locations and buildings. Primarily drawn from Long Island or New York City artists and locations, this project has been an adventure in discovery and documentation for LIM’s Art Collection. Artists did not leave behind GPS coordinates, titles can leave vague and uneven clues, and the Museum has only recently attempted to more carefully track the locations of places represented in their collection.

Artists Abroad

———–
(March 5 – August 1, 2021)
Art Museum, Costigan Gallery
Travel delights, challenges, and educates us as we experience new places and meet new people. But the current pandemic has curbed our travel opportunities nationally and globally. While stuck at home we can find pleasure in seeing depictions of past experiences as we fantasize about future ones. The collection of the LIM has a small but compelling collection of works by artists who traveled abroad between the 1860s and 1960s.

The first exhibition of its kind at LIM, it includes five windows, twenty lamps, and several displays showing how Tiffany glass was manufactured, how Louis C. Tiffany’s lamps were assembled, and how collectors today can distinguish between authentic lamps and forgeries.

Fire & Form: New Directions in Glass

———–
(August 20 – December 27, 2021)
History Museum
————————
Organized by the Long Island Museum, Fire and Form: New Directions in Glass will feature nearly 50 works from eight contemporary artists, all proving that glass is a sculptural creation of near-infinite artistic and narrative variety. The artists chosen in this exhibition all illustrate a variety of approaches, methods, and inspirational starting points. And they include some of the most influential and important creators in this medium. This visually striking exhibition will sprawl over a total of 2,500 square feet in LIM’s Visitor’s Center. It will also be accompanied by a richly illustrated 30-page catalogue that will be printed as a takeaway for visitors.
