For the fourth year, 100 independent artists of merit from around the world have beeen invited to participate in The Governor's island Art Fair. Each artist is granted a room in the abandoned military barracks on Governors Island and is given free reign to design his or her own exhibition space. The exhibitor roster also includes a select group of innovative galleries.

The result is the dramatic transformation of a national landmark into a spiraling trove of fresh, exciting artwork. The epic scope of this fair includes sculpture, photography, painting, video, sound, and object installations.

With interactive creative programs, performance art and musical acts mixed in throughout the run of the fair, visitors can expect the unexpected around every corner. 

Ferry's to the Island run every half hour from the ferry terminal at the tip of Manhattan (adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry), and every ten minutes from Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park at the end of Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn.

Come enjoy a great day of art and fun.
