Visit our Free Art Island Outpost on historic Governors Island every Saturday & Sunday this summer from 11-3 PM for free hands-on art making workshops and art-viewing experiences!
Join us as we spend the summer amongst the trees, with the crickets and cicadas, dreaming of far away spaces and surreal surroundings! Places with wonderful surprises and strange twists, where not making sense makes the most sense! Be prepared for theater games and film-making; painting, collage, and found object art; costume and prop-making; up-cycling, recycling, and re-purposing! And don’t forget: The Flubber Experience!
