Part of Arts Alive LI – Arts Month Celebration
(Long Island, NY) The annual Arts Alive LI “Arts Month,” sponsored by the Long Island Arts Alliance (LIAA) and Bethpage Federal Credit Union is a month-long celebration of cultural events that take place across Long Island. Running through October 31, 2014, 40 remarkable venues will host over 100 events, including a special Hispanic Heritage Month Exhibition running through October 26 at Bloomingdale’s Furniture Gallery at the Roosevelt Field Mall. Sponsored by the Long Island Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the LIAA, 12 Hispanic Long Island resident artists, will each have their artwork on display, many pieces for sale, throughout the gallery. An artists’ reception to kick-off the exhibition recently took place at the Bloomingdale’s Furniture Gallery.
