This focused installation brings together the work of three Long Island artists who boldly paved their own creative paths. Mayhew (b. 1924), Parsons (1900-1982), and Wilson (1924-2015) each created abstract paintings inspired, in part, by their experiences of nature, specific landscapes, or weather.

Community Perspectives Video: What is Home?

What is home? Community members Renee Flagler, Joan Kim Suzuki, and Allison McGovern share their perspectives on the subject. This video is available for viewing both in the Museum galleries as well as on the Museum’s YouTube Channel.

Learn about the participants:

Renee Flagler is an award-winning author, coach, and the Executive Director of Girls Inc. of Long Island, where the mission is to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. Girls inc. of Long Island is the Long Island Affiliate of the National Girls Inc. organization. Renee has a long history of community service and engaging in advocacy on behalf of women and girls. 

Joan Kim Suzuki is an Asian-American artist living in Long Island. Her work is a reflection of her childhood, growing up hearing stories of the culture she never experienced. She always felt confused about whether she was American or Asian, until she had children of her own and after a long time of soul-searching realized that she can be both Asian and American. Her art tells a story, and each piece has a memory painted into it.

Dr. Allison McGovern, an anthropological archaeologist, is currently a Visiting Lecturer in Anthropology at Columbia University. Her multidisciplinary research integrates archaeology with historical research methods, public engagement, planning, and historic preservation advocacy. She is working on a book entitled Long Island Dirt which explores local histories through archaeology.
