Founded as Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, LMCC serves, connects, and makes space for artists and community. Since 1973, LMCC has been the champion for independent artists in New York City and the cultural life force of Lower Manhattan.
We envision New York City as a place in which artists and community in dialogue are creating a more just, equitable, and sustainable society.
Presented by LMCC, the River To River Festival is Downtown New York City’s completely free summer arts festival.
The River To River Festival celebrates artistic and creative diversity across disciplines, presenting live art and installation in public spaces and in partnership with leading institutions in Lower Manhattan.
