The Bonac Tonic Art Collective was conceived in 2005 with the mantra that art should be for everyone. The name Bonac Tonic comes from the nickname given to the iconic green boxed iced tea, originally produced by Schwenk’s and now made by Hampton Dairy – a favorite beverage for many who grew up on the South Fork.
