Island artist Janet Culbertson will have two recent works included in the Heckscher Museum’s Long Island Biennial. Highly regarded and widely exhibited, Ms. Culbertson is known as an artist and activist who does not shy away from difficult or controversial subjects. Her two works in the Biennial reflect the pain and loss from the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

The exhibit will run from Oct. 17, 2020 through Jan. 10, 2021. Fifty-two artists will be represented by 100 works of art.
