Figment NYC

FIGMENT is an annual celebration of creative culture on Governors Island in New York Harbor. It provides an open forum for artists, helps build a creative community and fosters participatory and public art. A broad spectrum of arts are represented, including sculpture, performance, music, installation, dance, costuming and activities. It is free and open to the public.

As a free, non-profit volunteer-planned event starring a legion of artists eager to share, FIGMENT hopes to advance social and personal transformation through creativity.

FIGMENT is a social and creative experience uninterrupted by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. Consider it a breath of fresh air in an era with so much emphasis on commercializing art and culture. Selling goods or services, soliciting donations and advertising are not permitted.

It is supposed to be really sunny on Sunday and I am going to check out Figment and the Eliason Waterfalls, two of which can be seen from the free ferry to Governor's Island. Email if you're interested!
