ABOUT MOCA L.I.Museum of Contemporary Arts Long Island (MoCA L.I.) is the exhibition space of the Patchogue Arts Council (PAC).By redefining PAC’s exhibition space from Gallery to Museum, opportunities for the community and the artists we serve grows exponentially. PAC has always been unconventional in comparison to other arts councils. Our primary focuses are to make current and contemporary art accessible to everyone and to serve artists across Long Island. We work to create inclusiveness in all of our opportunities for Long Island’s artistic communities. Through our programming, we support, promote, and encourage early, mid-career, and established artists working in all media and all walks of life.
When a few folks met around a kitchen table to talk about how to cultivate the art scene in Patchogue, little did they know that they were to about to play an integral role in the cultural renaissance of their community. However, with the launch of the Patchogue Arts Council, the contagious enthusiasm and dedication of the founding members created an extraordinary organization that is now engendering an optimism about Patchogue and serving as a model for arts groups across Long Island.
The Patchogue Arts Council (PAC) provides artists of all mediums with opportunities to share their work, network with other creatives, and participate in arts advocacy initiatives. Our service, membership and programs reach the entire L.I. community and beyond!
The Patchogue Arts Council is located at 20 Terry St., Suite 116, Patchogue NY. For more information visit www.patchoguearts.org. Email email@example.com.
