Governors Island Arts Orga­ni­za­tions in Res­i­dence

Governors Island is a 172-acre island in New York Harbor. It’s only eight minutes from Manhattan by ferry and a favorite seasonal destination. The island has a beautiful park, historic buildings, and a variety of cultural and educational programs. 

The City of New York and the Trust for Gov­er­nors Island annually sponsor over twenty arts organizations in residence. Currently, it is a seasonal program from spring through fall. Over the next decade, it will become a year-round residency.

Each arts, culture, and education organization receives access to a former military house to host free exhibitions and programs for the public at least Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check with each organization for additional hours.
