Maybe the Mastic Peninsula Historical Society should explain how the artist was hired to produce the artwork, specifically did they give the artist any size parameters. If the artwork was intended to be displayed outside, it should have been properly weather-proof.
Agreed...The artist did a crap job, painted it on masonite, wrong move, none of the done by the village....I believe they werent hung because its an embarrassment and they should have gone after teh astist, probaly one of Mauras gay merry henchpeople...

you didn't need to mention her. This debacle was not the villages fault. It is yet another example of the lies being spread by some who do not want the village to succeed.

Mastic Peninsula Historical Society was given the grant, they came up with the concept and they hired the artist. The artist was to recreate art that was drawn by a young girl that hung in the William Floyd Estate. The art was to be hung to guide people to the William Floyd Estate.
There was a $5000 grant that was suppose to cover the cost of the artist as well as mounting and materials. The entire $5000 was given to the artist (some one's relative???)
The re-creatation were way too big and painted on masonite, making them very hard to display outdoors.
Because the Deputy Mayor signed off on the grant (so Mastic Peninsula Historical Society could qualify for the money) this fiasco got dropped in the lap of the Village, and nothing the Village does with them will ever be OK with some people.
And, by the way...these painting were under salt water for days after Sandy and held up very well.
this is a bunch of lies. i personally know the artist. she was told specifically to paint them on masonite. the former mayor had the pictures for a little while and then turned them over to the deputy mayor. the village did not "get stuck" with this. the artist was NOT given $5000.00.(not even close) maybe you should know what you are talking about before you comment. The artist is not a relative of the village at all. again, trying to make village incompetence someone else's fault.

What? Speaking the truth is so "we can make a name for ourselves"? That makes no sense. Its called SPEAKING THE TRUTH.
Learn who to do it and this village might get better.

Why should they do a PR event for hideous and damaged paintings? If they're an embarrassment, Mastic Beach would once again be made fun of in the news.
