The Huntington Arts Council,  a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, promotes arts and culture generated by 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 by providing timely news and events via Arts Cultural News (circulation: 90,000). We also offer artistic programs and services to our more than 100 cultural organization members who encompass the broad spectrum of arts disciplines. The Huntington Arts Council plays a leading role in sustaining the economic benefits of the arts through its promotion of activities and events in our community. 

The Huntington Arts Council is the official arts coordinating agency of the Town of Huntington and serves as the primary regranting agency in Suffolk County for the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA).

The Huntington Arts Council convenes panels to evaluate and rate grant applications made to the Council. Panels usually consist of a diverse group of arts professionals, each with expertise in a different genre or discipline, as well as those with knowledge of artistic and programmatic quality, managerial and fiscal competence, and service to the public.

Panelist nominations come from many sources, including arts organizations, individual artists, school administrators, and the public. Self-nominations are accepted. All panelists must be Long Island residents for the duration of their service.

To nominate yourself or a person for panel service, please complete the following form. This form and the nominee's current resume must be submitted to the Council before panelists can serve.
