Since 2008, the Patchogue Arts Council (PAC) has been presenting quality arts programming to the Patchogue community and has been acclaimed for its contributions to the revitalization and vibrancy of the village. Patchogue Village has undergone a cultural renaissance and 2018 is yet another momentous year in our history as an arts organization and an influential moment in time for the Arts on Long Island as a whole. As we celebrate PAC's 10th Anniversary, we are also excited to celebrate our location in the heart of Long Island’s first officially zoned Arts & Cultural District! We are proud to serve as the catalyst for innovative reform with our local government.
The impact of the arts on Patchogue’s revitalization is a prime example of what happens when the arts are supported. As noted by the Americans for the Arts in their 2017 published report of the top ten reasons to support the arts; they state that the arts “Improve individual well-being, unify communities, strengthen the economy, are good for local businesses, drive tourism, and spark creativity and innovation.”
PAC strives to hew to its mission by serving the community with free and low cost imPACtful cultural events, making substantial opportunities accessible for all to experience art.
