On October 13, 2010, the Babylon Village Arts Council honored Senator Owen H. Johnson at a fundraiser at the Babylon Masonic Lodge. Senator Johnson was instrumental in securing the initial funding for the not-for profit organization.
The Babylon Village Arts Council was formed in 2003 by a group of village residents who recognized the need to present various art experiences to the Babylon Village community. From that vision the Babylon Village Arts Council has become an integral part in the cultural lives of its residents.
