About LMCC's Arts Center at Governors Island - Coming Soon!
Opening in Fall 2019, the Arts Center at Governors Island will be LMCC’s first permanent home and serves as the gateway to Governors Island’s Arts and Culture District. Within its four walls, the Center fully embodies LMCC’s mission to serve and connect artists and communities. It is envisioned as an incubator for creative experimentation and gathering space to engage in dialogue.
Built in 1870, the 40,000 square foot warehouse has been re-envisioned for 21st century artists and audiences. The Center features an Artist Residency program with studio and presenting space for artists to develop their work; and a broad range of events—including performances, exhibitions, talks, and art-making workshops— to convene artists and the public in an exchange of ideas and creative practice.
Focused on site-specific work, the Arts Center will explore themes of the environment, geography, and history as they relate to Governors Island and New York City at large. Public programs are designed for both adult and family audiences; all are welcome.
