Long Island Museum Highlights Modernism, Paul Rudolph


"Arcadia/Suburbia: Architecture on Long Island 1930 - 2010" will bring to light the impressive architectural history of Long Island over the past eighty years at the Heckscher Museum of Art, Huntington, NY. The role that Long Island has played in the broader development of Modernism and Post-Modernism in the US will be explored, although the vacation architecture of the Hamptons and the East End will not be included. This exhibition will help raise awareness about Modern architecture in the region and encourage preservation.
This exhibition is curated by architectural historian Dr. Erik Neil. It is accompanied by a catalogue “Long Island Moderns: Art & Architecture of the North Shore and Beyond” that includes essays relating to Modernism in both architecture and the fine arts.
Included in the show are Paul Rudolph's Deane Residence in Great Neck and ENDO Laboratories in Garden City.

The exhibition runs from January 16 - April 11, 2010.
