Street art across Long Island – New York News

Public art is everywhere.


It can be a simple splash of color on a quiet street, or a grand mural stretching across an entire building — a showcase of painting prowess, or a design to dazzle the passerby. No two pieces are the same, and each is a testimony to the unique culture and history of the place it comes from.

Take a tour of our collection of public art across Long Island, and enjoy the culture that exists right in your own backyard.

“Garden Party,” a large hummingbird mural by local artist Caitlyn Shea, has attracted some media attention. The painting was almost put into jeopardy when the building on East Main Street in Riverhead was slated for renovations calling for the mural’s removal. Shea started a Facebook page and circulated a petition to help save the mural. The public support prompted building owner Jason Gamba to allow the mural to stay.
