Father’s Day at The Long Island Museum


The Long Island Museum Welcomes Dads
Complimentary admission for fathers and grandfathers

Treat Dad to an historic adventure on Fathers Day without opening his wallet! The Long Island Museum in Stony Brook will pay tribute to dads of all ages on Sunday, June 21 from noon to 5 p.m. by offering free admission to all fathers and grandfathers.

Dads will enjoy visiting Ansel Adams, Early Works in the Art Museum. Though most museum goers are only familiar with the heroic, high-glass, high-contrast prints that Adams manufactured to order in the 1970s-80s, earlier in his career he created masterful small-scale, more intimate prints. Ansel Adams, Early Works focuses on those prints made from the 1920s to the 1950s and includes 41 works from the collection of Michael P. Mattis and Judy Hochberg.

Also in the Art Museum is American Horizons, East to West: Landscape Painting and Photography. Drawn both from the LIM’s permanent collection and from some notable private and museum loans, this exhibition focuses on the enduring landscape tradition in American art.  From 19th century artists to 20th and 21st century painters and photographers, American Horizons East to West suggests that the supposedly timeless nature of a fixed American landscape is illusory.

Finally, the Carriage Museum features ten galleries and nearly 100 horse-drawn vehicles, telling the history of transportation in the United States in the 19th century. If an outdoor stroll is more Dad’s speed, the Long Island Museum grounds include five historic structures, including a blacksmith shop and a one-room schoolhouse, set on nine acres of landscaped gardens.
