Downtown Riverhead is receiving a serious infusion of public art. Opening this weekend, the public sculpture installation "Reflextions, Art in the Park" can be found in Milton L. Burns Park, located near the Southampton Town traffic circle.

The outdoor installation presents sculpture and art installation that make use of light as medium or aspect of the work. The exhibition opens on Saturday, September 15, 2018 and continues on view through October 20, 2018.

The art will be illuminated nightly from 7 to 10 p.m. They are viewable by day as a reflective art display from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
