History
This foundation was founded in 1948 by Boris Blai, who studied sculpture under Auguste Rodin. For those with a little dust on their art history textbooks, Rodin is best known for his statue "The Thinker," and other pieces depicting human realism. In addition to studying under Rodin, Blai also was a founding member of the Tyler School of Art at Temple University. The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts & Sciences continues today its work to enhance the creative arts and the physical sciences.

    What a beautiful place for a wedding on the island! When looking for a venue, this did not pop up on the radar anywhere. I feel like it was a hidden jewel compared to all the other locations we visited (on-site or on-line). So glad we found it!

    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!!
