Off the Rack: Building and Preserving LIM’s Art Treasures
YouTube virtual tour
The Long Island Museum (LIM)
The Long Island Museum’s art collection, which consists of more than 500 paintings and 2,000 works on paper, makes it possible to offer a dynamic schedule of exhibitions each year. But much of this collection usually stays out of visitor’s sight in carefully protected storage spaces. “Off the Rack” opens the doors and empties the storage areas to give visitors a rare chance to see some of the gems and highlights of LIM’s collection.
