John Bouvier: “The East End has a rich and diverse culture that is strongly represented by many artists that contribute their talents and time; devoting their lives to the art of expression in so many forms. We are fortunate to be able to support and provide both the means and opportunities that allow others to share these talents with residents and visitors alike. I applaud this effort to offer a broader access to the arts and widen the understanding and appreciation of the arts in our area.”
Minerva Perez: "Having an open invitation with free transportation to wonderful spaces such as the Art Barge and the D'Amico house is an initiative highlighting a south fork collaborative approach to sharing the artistic wealth of our region with all members of the community. I'm proud to be a part of SHACC for this and other efforts that speak to the need to widen the participation of our East End community in the celebration and sustaining of these important spaces and institutions.”
Southampton Arts and Culture Committee (SHACC): The mission is to advise the Town of Southampton on promoting greater exposure and participation in arts and culture-related activities through creative collaboration. Founded in 2017, its goal is to inspire engagement with art in historical, cultural, and social contexts on the East End of Long Island.
