MoCA L.I.ghts Event Schedule & Map

MoCA L.I.ghts  has begun to transform the Village of Patchogue into Long Island’s first open-air museum and make it the arts destination of 2020! 

From November 5 – 8, 2020,  the facades of contemporary and historic buildings, the PTPA Marquee, and PAC’s pop-up inflatable gallery screen will illuminate the Village with projected artworks, animation, and innovative site-specific media works created by local, national, and international artists. Businesses in the downtown area will become a vibrant backdrop to this immersive arts experience, lighting and lifting up spirits of all ages in ways Long Island has never before seen.  

MoCA L.I.ghts  programming includes a number of outdoor art experiences including Art on the Marquee, Artchitecture, Night Visions Pop-up Projected Gallery, New Visions exhibition at MoCA L.I. and on-site educational experiences offered in collaboration with Cornell Cooperative Suffolk County & Marine Department.  

The entire series of events is conceived for the public to enjoy safely on foot, by car, and online for free from October to December 2020.
