Facilities and Capacity

The gallery room features slatted wooden ceiling, exposed steel, and a unique architectural layout, giving a fresh look among other local venues. The open floor plan allows for flexible seating, and the walls are always adorned with local art to add eclectic decor to your wedding setting. The main gallery can accommodate up to 150 seated guests. Outside, you and your guests will have access to an upstairs patio overlooking Barnegat Bay. This area is the perfect place to host cocktail hour. LBIF also has beautiful outdoor walking paths, and a beach access just across the street if you decide to have a beachside ceremony.

Services Offered
LBIF helps couples plan every detail of their wedding, from the room decor to the final seating arrangements and table placement. While LBIF does not offer in-house catering, they welcome you to bring your favorite caterers and vendors to make the space completely your own. The LBIF staff will also help with setup and teardown of the gallery and outdoor deck space.

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
