The Babylon Village Arts Council was formed in 2003 by a group of village residents who recognized the need to present various art experiences to the Babylon Village community. From that vision the Babylon Village Arts Council (BVAC) has become an integral part in the cultural lives of its residents.
Babylon High School Art Department Partnership
The Babylon Village Arts Council is proud is announce an art partnership program with the Babylon High School Art Department to foster the love of art in the next generation. Two Babylon High School students, Alision Buser and Kaara Henrique will create works of arts with supplies provided by the Babylon Village Arts Council in the amount of $200 per student. Under the guidance of Cheryl Schweider, art teacher at Babylon High School, students will learn time management skills ,budget constraints, and design options. To experience a real life art exhibit each participant will exhibit their work at the 6th Annual Outdoor Art show entitled “Art by the Falls” on May 18,2013 in Argyle Park which will provide interaction with the public. Their work will be displayed at Astoria Federal Savings as part of the Rotational Art Program. This program is funded through membership and donations. If interested in sponsoring this program for next year, consider becoming a member. Keeping the arts in the forefront benefits the community in positive ways and fosters a love for the arts for all ages.
