Display of Fire Island photographs by artist Joanne Mulberg in coordination with the Long Island Pride Parade
Sunday, June 11, 2023
12 – 5 pm
Enjoy this special display of four newly acquired photographs by Joanne Mulberg in celebration of Long Island Pride’s parade and festival in Huntington Village and Heckscher Park! Mulberg, an artist and LGBTQ+ ally, is known for her photographs of Fire Island’s The Pines and Cherry Grove communities. Her images capture everything from house parties and beach scenes to the iconic Miss Fire Island pageant. Heckscher Museum Curator Karli Wurzelbacher explains, “Fire Island is a quintessential part of Long Island. I’m glad that some of the stories of Fire Island communities are now represented in the permanent collection. The Museum looks forward to continuing to increase the visibility of LGBTQ+ artists, subjects, and histories in our exhibitions and collection.”
