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.
Rotational Art Program in partnership with Astoria Bank features BVAC artist members for a month long exhibit
Featured Artist for the Month: Ed Hansen
Ed Hansen graduated from Long Island University, C.W. Post with a BA in Photography. He is a recipient of a 2014 Haym Solomon Medal of Excellence from the “Celebrating Color” Art Competition held in NYC in July 2014. His work has been published in Photographer’s Forum Magazine and Photography annuals. Mr. Hansen’s photographic images have been exhibited extensively.
