A donation to the 2023 Annual Appeal makes a big difference in the Museum’s ability to fund its activities in the coming year. Your generosity helps us to produce exhibitions and programs that are unique, inspiring, and educational for tens of thousands of people, both children and adults. Each Annual Appeal gift demonstrates the giver’s partnership with the Museum, and these partnerships are the foundation supporting everything we do.

The financial success of this year’s Annual Appeal sets the stage for ambitious initiatives. A major international exhibition, George Grosz: The Stick Men, was developed with Das kleine Grosz Museum, Berlin, and will open at The Heckscher Museum in spring 2024. The exhibition has been so popular in Germany that its run has been extended a month longer than expected. A Berlin native, Grosz moved to America and settled in Huntington. Here he composed The Stick Men series, his commentary on the human condition which still resonates today. This exhibition includes significant loans from European and American private and public collections. It is the first time since 1948, shortly after World War II, that the series has been shown.

Later in the year, the Museum will present the 8th edition of the Long Island Biennial. This highly competitive juried exhibition is among the top regional showcases for contemporary artists from communities throughout Suffolk and Nassau counties. Attracting diverse entries from both up-and-coming and established artists, the Biennial demonstrates the Museum’s commitment to nurturing and promoting a vibrant regional art scene.

In addition to these exhibition highlights, crowd-favorite programs such as Lunar New Year, Art Walk, the Draw Out! Community Arts Festival, and Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Family Celebration, allow the Museum to collaborate with an array of enthusiastic cultural and community partners.

We hope you will join us in supporting these partnerships and other upcoming exhibitions and programs by making a gift to the Annual Appeal today.
