Artwork on View


June 10 – November 12, 2023

Leonard’s powerful work in ceramics, painting, video, and installation engages with Long Island’s colonial history; celebrates Indigenous knowledge and resilience; and addresses urgent ecological issues. The exhibition will debut Contact, 2,023…, a new work that The Heckscher Museum has commissioned from Leonard. The large-scale work will be a map of Long Island made up of thousands of individual porcelain thumbprints resembling shells. Leonard plans to glaze them in colors and patterns that reference both wampum and delftware. The exhibition will also feature loans from the artist and from public and private collections.

Through  March 2024

Exploring the spaces we inhabit, this exhibition encompasses more than 50 artworks from the Museum’s Collection that reflect the many meanings of home. The house is a site where daily life unfolds, work takes place, identities cohere and shift, memories form, and imagination takes flight. The art on view demonstrates the central role that domestic space plays in our lives and in art.

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.
