Now in its 23rd year, Long Island’s Best is a hallmark of the Museum’s educational programming. This initiative is the only juried exhibition for Long Island high school students that provides the opportunity to exhibit in a museum. The Heckscher encourages students to think outside the box as they work in a broad range of media, styles, and subjects.

Students are challenged to select artwork on view in the Museum as the inspiration for their own work, making creative connections with the generations who have come before them. The object labels next to each work include a statement written by the student and an image of the professional work that inspired them.

Lisa Chalif, Heckscher Museum Curator, and guest juror artist Robyn Cooper juried the 2019 exhibition. This year, the Museum received 359 artwork entries from 57 schools, with 80 selected for display in the exhibition. Thank you to all of this year’s participating students and teachers!
