Save the Date for LMCC's Arts Center
at Governors Island and
River To River Festival 2014
Happy May! Over the course of the next few months, LMCC will be presenting a bevy of exciting public programming. There is much to explore with LMCC this spring and summer, and we'd like to make sure you're aware of two upcoming initiatives heading your way.
The first is that LMCC's Arts Center at Governors Island is opening for the public season May 24–26. Throughout the weekend, audiences will have an opportunity to experience all kinds of exciting events in our Arts Center. We'll unveil our 2014 gallery show that highlights the work of Trisha Brown, we'll visit the studios of 20 artists-in-residence who have been working on the island since March in various mediums, and we'll see rehearsals by two choreographers, Tere O'Connor and Joanna Kotze.
For more details, please visit Arts Center.
The second is that we have announced the line up for River To River 2014! This year, the Festival spans 11 days from June 19–29 and features 35 projects, and 90+ artists. We invite you to experience intimate and provocative dance, music, visual art, and new media projects in public parks, in historic landmarks, on Governors Island, and along the waterfront. All events are free, but some do require RSVP.
For more details, and to learn more about the artists participating in the Festival, please visit River To River.
We look forward to seeing you on Governors Island and at upcoming River To River events!
