Governors Island is a short, $2 ferry ride from lower Manhattan or Brooklyn. On weekends during the month of September, the island is hosting the Governors Island Art Festival. In buildings once used as military barracks (it served a critical role in both the Revolutionary War and was an Army and Coast Guard post until the late 1990s) artists display their wares ranging from painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video, to sound art.
4heads, a New York City nonprofit organization, manages the Governors Island Art Festival. Hours are 11am – 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays, September 6 – 28, 2014.
