Celebrate 10 Years with the Great Neck Arts Center!
"It started as an idea," according to Great Neck Arts Center Executive Director Regina Gil. Actually, the Great Neck Arts Center did begin as one woman's dream back in 1986. An artist in her own right, Ms. Gil kept her dream in the forefront, receiving her first grant, "seed money," from Assemblyman Tom DiNapoli in 1989 and then, by 1994, garnering considerable support from Bob Rosegarten, who was mayor of Great Neck Plaza at that time. Mayor Rosegarten declared May 1995 "Great Neck Arts Center Month" and Ms. Gil reports "steady growth ever since."
