The artwork of Sydney Albertini is on display and open to the public through July 30. The opening on Saturday night, 7/15/2017, featured lively conversation by all of those attending and was punctuated with speeches by Zachary Cohen recalling the early days of Duck Creek as a possible site for exhibits and other community programming and Councilman Peter Van Scoyoc sharing with the audience that this is the first project to be completed with oversight by the town property management committed established in 2014.
Under a recent licensing agreement, the historic site will be operated as a community arts center under the auspices of Peconic Historic Preservation, Inc., which will manage the property for the next ten years. The John Little Barn and its grounds will be available for exhibits and other community programming.
