MORE ABOUT PAC • MoCA L.I.
PAC was founded to help implement the village’s arts revitalization strategy. Over the years,
Biennials, Walking Arts Tours, Patchogue Arts Festivals, PAC MAC festivals, exhibits and public art
installations have enhanced the reputation of Patchogue as a vibrant cultural center. There has
been strong support from the business community. Partnerships and collaborations have helped
foster a strong sense of identity and have enhanced the reputation of Patchogue Village.

Thousands of people come to the downtown area for its cultural offerings. There now exists a
strong community identity rooted in the arts because of the efforts of PAC and Patchogue Village.
The value of the Patchogue Arts Council to artists and the community is in its reputation as a
leading organization presenting exhibitions & events focusing on contemporary art on Long Island
along with creative programming, collaborations & cross-marketing to artists, art professionals, &
the local community. PAC’s staff are all deeply involved in higher education which allows them to
collaborate with local colleges & scholars providing exhibitions, essays, and lectures which will
place the contemporary work it exhibits in the context of art history.

PAC’s programming supports L.I. artists. Its ongoing outreach seeks to help the community to
understand the importance of the arts. The quality of the programming makes culturally enriching
experiences accessible for the public. The interested public would have to travel at great
distances and expense to have access to this level of programming. PAC’s programs are providing
economic impact by creating a destination that encourages appreciation of cultural arts as well as
increased community outreach & foot traffic in the local area shops and restaurants. This is
evidenced by many positive articles about PAC’s programming seen in local media including LI
Advance, Ace’s Magazine, greaterpatchogue.com and Hampton’s Art Hub.

PAC takes great pride in creating and providing substantial support and opportunities for artists to
create new work. Our programming supports L.I. artists at large. Our ongoing outreach seeks to
help the community and visitors to understand the importance of the arts and brings
contemporary art to millennials & emerging artist communities. Our programs are providing
economic impact by creating a destination that encourages appreciation of cultural arts through
museum class programming. Almost all events are free and always open to the public. All the
venues used are in handicap accessible public spaces. Our audience has been comprised of
families with children of all ages, from toddlers to retired folks in wheelchairs, residents from
across all areas of town and tourists visiting for the day.

Our general audience is diverse & ranges in age from 5 - 85+.

PAC’s mission and programming efforts are supported by substantial research published by
Americans for the Arts. Most recently in a report titled Arts & Economic Prosperity IV it was
concluded that, nationally, the art industry generated $135.2 billion of economic activity—$61.1
billion by the nation's nonprofit arts and culture organizations in addition to $74.1 billion in
event-related expenditures by their audiences. This economic activity supports 4.13 million
full-time jobs and generates $86.68 billion in resident household income. Our industry also
generates $22.3 billion in revenue to local, state, and federal governments every year—a
yield well beyond their collective $4 billion in arts allocations. The report further proves that
dinner and a show go hand-in-hand. Attendance at arts events generates income for local
businesses—restaurants, parking garages, hotels, and retail stores. An average arts attendee
spends $24.60 per event, not including the cost of admission. On the national level, these
audiences provided $74.1 billion of valuable revenue for local merchants and their communities.
**Arts & Economic Prosperity IV is the fourth study of the nonprofit arts and culture industry's
impact on the economy. It is the most comprehensive study of its kind ever conducted, it provides
quantifiable economic impact of nonprofit arts and culture organizations and their audiences.
Using findings from 182 regions representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia, an inputoutput
economic model is able to deliver national estimates.

Most recently the APA specially mentions the contributions of PAC to this transformation.
Here from their website: “Community programming and support for the arts have also
greatly contributed to Patchogue's renaissance. Alive at Five and Arts on Terry, outdoor
street festivals featuring performances by local, regional, and international musicians and
artists, have proved to be major economic catalysts for the downtown, attracting more
than 25,000 visitors each summer. Local artists continue to support the revival of
Patchogue through their involvement in the Patchogue Arts Council, leading on local
beautification projects designed to improve downtown visitors' downtown experience”

Long Island’s newest museum located on Terry Street, the heart of Patchogue’s Arts District.
Museum of Contemporary Arts Long Island, or MOCA L.I., is the newly defined exhibition space of
the Patchogue Arts Council (PAC).

PAC has always been unconventional in comparison to other arts councils. Our main areas of focus
are to make current and contemporary art accessible to everyone and to serve artists across Long
Island. We are striving to create inclusiveness in all of our opportunities particularly for Long Island’s
Spanish-speaking communities. Through our exhibition programming, we support, promote, and
encourage early, mid-career, and established artists that work in all media and all walks of life.
The caliber of career-enriching opportunities that we provide to Long Island-based artists was
previously unheard of in Suffolk or Nassau County. We don’t charge artists to submit or participate.
Rather, we give stipends to exhibiting artists to help cover the costs associated with the creation of
new work.

PAC’s Gallery now MOCA L.I. has credibility as a space that presents high-caliber exhibitions locally
on Long Island. We provide viewing of world-class art on Long Island.
MOCA L.I. is a museum for artists and community, created by artists of the community. It will
continue to serve the community and strengthen the cultural fabric of Long Island.
