In accordance with the latest public health directive from the Governor of New York, Preservation Long Island’s operations are currently limited to the digital space and our staff is working remotely. All inquiries and service requests from our members, supporters, subscribers, community partners, and the general public will continue to be responded in a timely manner during regular business hours via email or telephone. Our website and social media channels continue to be updated and monitored by our staff.
As always the Preservation Long Island team is busy. Through our digital platforms, our staff continues to provide advocacy services and content that includes blogs, digital exhibits and collections, virtual tours and educational activities, and resources related to regional preservation, stewardship, and Long Island history. We invite you to stay connected with us by visiting our website and following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Our e-newsletter will continue to share updates, news, and information with our subscribers and members – be sure to sign-up if you are not already a subscriber.
Given the mandated guidelines necessary for keeping us safe and healthy, Preservation Long Island’s in-person upcoming events and programs for the spring and summer have been postponed, rescheduled, or canceled. Details about ticket refunds or exchanges will be communicated to registrants by email, telephone, and posted on our event pages. Be sure to visit our event pages regularly for information about upcoming virtual events, exhibits, lectures, and online programming.
Focusing on the digital space, and adapting to this new normal has created an opportunity for us to explore innovative ways to share our work and connect you to regional history, material culture, and historic places through virtual experiences, and online content. One of the ways we will do this is by “pulling back the curtain” on initiatives we are currently working on.
In the coming weeks, through our website and across our social media platforms, we will take you behind the scenes as we roll out phases of the Jupiter Hammon Project, plan our new Indigenous History & Art Exhibition, and develop Escape Room experiences for our historic houses, among other mission-driven activities. We will also introduce you to the extraordinary regional historic preservation projects that have been selected for our 2020 Preservation Awards.
We are all working towards the day when these exciting initiatives can be experienced in our historic houses and exhibition gallery and in the communities where preservation success stories begin.
Thank you for your interest in our programs and for your continued support of Preservation Long Island. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
