    255TRIM-THE-TREE PARTY WAS GREAT!
    Winter Solstice was a huge success this last Saturday, December 21 during our Spirit of Huntington Trim-A-Tree Holiday party. We had a fun packed party of ornament painting, music and fun treats for everyone. It was a great time to make wishes for the future and come together in love!

  2. AUTUMN ART COMES IN MANY FORMS

    November 22, 2013 by newmedia

    With the brisk fall season comes many beautiful colors and inspiring scenes within nature. A painter may be overwhelmed with ideas for their work, but there are many other ways to utilize this time of year as well! A common activity to take part in is carving a pumpkin, which, believe it or not, is certainly an art form. The main purpose for this is to create a fun and frightening design which will then glow from within at night. However, Halloween truly originated from the Day of the Dead, when those who had passed away were honored. Therefore, the true reason for carving a pumpkin and placing a light within it is not just for aesthetics. The pumpkins were meant to welcome deceased loved ones with their images, as well as scare away evil spirits. Believe it or not, the turnip was originally carved and the idea of using a pumpkin came much later!

  9. AWARDED JELLYFISH RESTAURANT MURAL

    May 3, 2013 by newmedia

    Erich Preis and the team at Spirit of Huntington are really excited about the new commissioned project that was awarded to us from JellyFish Restaurant. When owner Ralph Colamussi was looking to create the perfect environment for the Jelaquarium he looked no further than down the road at our center, especially after the fish restoration Erich did for the restaurant, to create the perfect mural. Ralph showed us an exhibit at the Vanderbilt Museum as inspiration to showcase his beautiful aquarium room. We’ll keep you posted on progress and updates!

  10. Car Culture: Art and the Automobile

    April 29, 2013 by newmedia

    Art and the Automobile explores artistic response to the automobile, which has transformed life in the 20th century more significantly than any other single factor, irrevocably changing the appearance of our environment and our experience of it. While some artists focus on images of the car itself, inspired by its alluring modernity or its status as an icon or expression of personal identity, others create art work from car parts such as scrap metal and tires. Later artists comment on the automobile’s ubiquitous presence in the landscape, seen in the roadside environment, the phenomenon of the road trip, and ultimately the damage caused to our environment. The photographers, painters, and sculptors included in this exhibition examine an aspect of our lives that is usually taken for granted.
