The "Cedar Beach Gallery" at Cedar Beach is a nautical themed mural that spans the length of the tunnel that runs underneath Ocean Parkway and connects Cedar Beach to Cedar Beach Marina & Campground. The mural was completed in the spring of 2022 in advance of the summer season. Work on the mural was done in two phases, the west side wall was painted in October 2021 and the east side wall in April 2022.
Designed by students from Amityville, Babylon, Deer Park, North Babylon, West Babylon and Wyandanch high schools, the project was facilitated by the Parks Department and the Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts (BACCA) through the “Babylon Together Project.” The “Babylon Together Project” is a long term partnership with the Town of Babylon Local Development Corporation (LDC) in support of our local arts community, small businesses and organizations through public arts projects. Local artist Ron Becker, who serves on the BACCA Advisory Panel, played a key role in facilitating the participation of local high school students under the guidance of their teachers for this project.
