Figment Festival Governor’s Island New york review

Figment Container
Figment Festival Governor’s Island NY 2010
Amazing festival to attend if you have the time.  I am pretty sure this is the third year they have done it the festival.  It began as a low budget gallery walk through where artists set up temporary galleries in the abandoned housing left over from the island’s former use as a military base.  The energy level in general was very positive, an amazing number of family oriented open air exhibits and interactive events are all over the many lawns, under beautiful trees and in the houses once again.  Pictured above, something I absolutely loved, shipping containers converted to use as picnic pavilions overlooking the Hudson Harbor at the south end of the island.  Make time for this one, read more about it and get involved.  Even the free ferry ride from Manhattan to the island is worth something… all free! and plenty to see and do.
