Huntington Arts Council, Inc.
The Huntington Arts Council (HAC) promotes arts and culture for greater Long Island artists, to our children and to the general population. We work to enrich the cultural, social and economic life of the community by nurturing the professional development of artists, and providing timely news and events via the Arts Cultural News (90,000 distributions). Our Arts-in-Education program reaches 30,000 children every year through our partner school districts. We also offer artistic programs and services to our more than 100 member cultural organizations, encompassing the broad spectrum of arts disciplines.
Since it was founded in 1963 as a not-for-profit organization, the Huntington Arts Council has inspired and aided the growth of hundreds of art organizations and individual artists now flourishing across Long Island. The Huntington Arts Council celebrates the diversity of Long Island’s cultural resources through sponsored activities, programs and publications that advocate cultural awareness and education. The Huntington Arts Council is the official arts coordinating agency of the Town of Huntington and serves as the primary regranting agency in Suffolk & Nassau County for the Long Island Decentralization Program funded by the New York State Council on the Arts and JPMorgan Chase Foundation.
