Curated by Franklin Hill Perrell of the Artful Circle
with special thanks to Debra Wells
#MyLongIslandLandmarks, was inspired by an Instagram hashtag. We reached out to the community asking for depictions of favorite Long Island landmarks so that people would think about Long Island as a place of history and cultural connection. What resulted was a wonderful assemblage of well-known historic “landmarks” as well as Long Island places that, on the surface, may seem ordinary but become meaningful once their stories are known. Preservation Long Island then invited Franklin Hill Perrell of the Artful Circle to curate an exhibit that expanded on the theme. Included were stand-out submissions to our hashtag invitation as well as selected works by local artists who used Long Island as their subject.
