Long Island Moderns provides a new cultural narrative of Long Island in the 20th century. Throughout the period important artist such as Lee Krasner, Fernand Leger, Irving Penn and Cindy Sherman lived and worked on the island. Beginning in the late-1920s, architects like Albert Frey, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Wallace Harrison built homes for themselves or their clients. From the mid-1940s, Long Island became home to works by Masters of Modernism like Philip Johnson and Marcel Breuer and new communities like Levittown changed the landscape.

"In discussions of twentieth-century design and art on Long Island, the Hamptons have always hogged the spotlight. Long Island Moderns--a catalogue for two exhibits at the Heckscher Museum of Art in the town of Huntington--provides a useful counterpoint, focusing on the central portion of the island, where architects such as Albert Frey, Marcel Breuer, and Paul Rudolph built, and Fernand Leger, George Grosz, and Lee Krasner made art." --Modern Magazine
