History
LBIF was founded in 1948 by Dr. Boris Blai. Dr. Blai was an art student of the famed sculptor Auguste Rodin, and took his work to greater heights by becoming the founding Dean position of the Tyler School of Art at Temple University. His vision was to create a place where art students could learn and experiment, and express their creativity in a place of individual learning. With the same vision in mind, he created LBIF. The LBIF community continues this vision by offering art classes, workshops, local exhibitions, and educational programs for all of Loveladies.

    Lydia and the staff at LBIF made what could have been a disaster (RAIN!!) an experience we will never forget. They were flexible, professional and did everything to accommodate us... with a smile! It was a pleasure to work with the team. Thank you!!

    My wife and I were looking for a special place to hold our combined 50th birthdays celebration. We looked all over Long Beach Island and all the venues were either too small, too expensive, or did not allow us to have a live band into the late hours of the evening. We found the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts & Sciences. Their event space was perfect and the side deck area that overlooks the bay was a nice place to step away from the party for a while. The foundation and it's staff were very accommodating and professional and very friendly. They went the extra mile to assure our event went off without a hitch. I would HIGHLY recommend LBIF for your event
