Art & Culture
Since opening to the public in 2005, Governors Island has been a dynamic, unique venue for arts and culture to be both discovered and created in New York City. The Island brings accessible, groundbreaking and experimental arts to New Yorkers through our open and engaging platform that invites organizations from all five boroughs to produce free visual arts exhibitions and performances to annual site specific commissions in our public open spaces.
The Island is home to site-specific, long-term artworks within our park and public spaces. Our commission program gives the opportunity for artists and audiences to engage in site-specific projects responding to the Island’s unique conditions.
