CALL TO ARTISTS-Creating a Living Art Museum

We need a place for ALL the Visual Artists of Nassau County & Long Island to be able to exhibit their work. A museum that caters to LIVING artists, would be a great asset to Long Island. The only one that we have, isn't involved in the living artists that are here. There are a tremendous amount of creative people who don't belong to any particular organization & they are not being represented in any way.
Artists are the folks who usually don't have any money, so it doesn't make any sense to charge them to belong to anything. We need a representative, not a bunch of clicks for elite people.

We at the Artists Group are in the process of putting together a proposal to create The Long Island Living Museum of Fine Art. We would like to get input from others on what they think about this idea. The building would be a tribute to the working artists of Long Island and create a kind of "Town Square" where the public could gather and experience art in all its many forms. The museum would also be a place where the public could observe artists at work and take classes. Let us know what you think.

Still think it would be a great idea to elaborate on the Cultural Arts Academy.

Long Island Living Museum of Fine Art....LILMOFA

Designed with idea that if you are going to encourage ARTS in SCHOOLS you need to give the FUTURE inhabitants a FUTURE job in the field.

Highlighting LIVING ARTISTS that actually work, as their occupation. Studios at the Museum where they work, create. People could come in, look around, watch the artists as they create. Sculpture, painting, pottery, dance, literature, every aspect of the culture that surrounds us.........
