Summer Thursdays are Back!


After hours at the Long Island Museum

Summer Thursdays return to the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook on Thursday, June 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. Celebrate the upcoming summer solstice with warm weather related fun, gallery visits and music.
If you’ve visited the Long Island Museum in the past three years, you’ve seen our spectacular crocheted trees, designed by artist Carol Hummel and created by hundreds of community volunteers. This fall Carol and her crew will be installing another crocheted design on the museum campus so one of the Summer Thursday activities is a crochet party! Simple instructions will be provided so whether you’re new to crocheting or you’re a yarn pro, you’ll want to join in on this community project.

While you’re here, visit the Art Museum after hours for a new perspective on our world-class exhibitions. Finally, Pete Mancini and his band will rock the night away as you welcome in the first day of summer. Summer Thursdays will continue one Thursday a month through September and admission is free.
