Outdoor Murals & Mosaics - Archive

Exterior murals or mosaics NOT sponsored or owned by the Town of Huntington that formerly were publicly accessible at locations in Huntington, but have subsequently been de-installed, are documented in this section of the Public Art Inventory in order to retain an archival record of their prior existence. 

Title:  George Washington Mural

Artist(s):  Erich Preis

Year of Creation:  Circa 2010-2011 

(NOTE:  This mural, and other murals at this location, appear to have been removed in association with departure of the Spirit of Huntington Art Center, which had temporarily operated out of this building.  The Art Center relocated in November 2013 to the former South Huntington Public Library building at 2 Melville Rd., Huntington Station. As this and other murals had been painted on plywood panels, it is possible that they are still extant at locations unknown.)

Medium:  Paint on plywood panels

Description:  A representational depiction of the arrival of President George Washington by carriage at Platt's Tavern in Huntington in 1790 during his post-Revolutionary War tour of Long Island. 

Hamlet:  Huntington Village
