The 4heads Collective is presenting the opening of The 2nd Annual Governor’s Island Art Fair. The Art Fair will be on view and open to the public every weekend in September, 2009, from 11 am - 6 pm each Saturday and Sunday through September 27.
Gathered together on this bizarre abandoned military base, floating in the middle of New York Harbor are over 100 artists from around the world; painters, sculptors, puppeteers, photographers, performers, sound and video installation artists.
Each artist has been given a room of their own - which they have curated themselves. It’s a lot of art really — five buildings of 3-4 floors each. Come witness the incredible selection of artists that have come out for this event.
It all happens on the island from 3 to 6 pm Saturday Sept. 5th, 2009. The ferry is free. The exhibition is free. There will be provisions and music as well.
There will be live performances every weekend and more art than you can shake a stick at.
Make the last few days of summer memorable and inspiring ones.
