I had passed the Art League of Long Island many times on my way to someplace or other and always said to myself, ""One day I should stop and take a look.""  On this particular February day I had some time to spare and decided to finally go in.  I was sorry that I had not visited here before!

Since 1953 - it's mission has been ""focused on enhancing Long Island Cultural Life by promoting the appreciation, practice and enjoyment of the visual arts."" (website) ""It is the oldest and largest non-profit visual arts organization of its kind on Long Island... with classes, exhibitions and special events...It has a full calendar of courses, programs and activities for artists of ages, their families and anyone interested in art. (brochure)  It is open seven days a week, free of charge.

The exhibition presently on display is entitled ""Black Voices - an exhibition of African-American Artists of Long Island."" It is presented in their spacious, bi-level, atrium-style galllery (which hosts a dozen exhibits each year).  This one consists of paintings, sculpture, and even some interesting pieces of jewelry. Two benches on the main floor of the gallery provided me a place to contemplate the large sculpture I was drawn to. I took the stairs to the second floor viewing area where more works were displayed. There is also an elevator to this floor.

The lage building is easy to access.  A large, paved parking lot has four handicapped spaces.  The street-level, double-door entry has push button assist.  A small entryway and another set of doors (also with push-button assist) gets one into the main area of the building.

To enter the exhibition gallery required another set of double-glass doors.  The gallery is the core of the building, with outer hallways around leading to the nine art studios that are located here.

If you need a place to rest, other than the benches in the gallery, I found a couch and some chairs in one of the corridors.  Chairs seem to be readily available near the main entrance.

Single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restrooms can be found on both the main and second floors. Ask someone where they are, as I am not sure I can tell you exactly where they are.  I do know that they are in one of the corridors. There are no baby-changing stations.

The Art League of Long Island is an easily accessible, interesting, and low cost place to visit. Check their website to see all of their offerings.

As always, we at Destination:Accessible advise you to check a venue's website, www.artleagueli.org, when planning a visit, to ""know before you go.""
