Art In-Site on Governors Island

Governors Island is slowly being transformed from an abandoned military base to a public arts and recreation center. Many of the old houses have been stabilized and are open to visitors who can walk freely through their empty, echoing rooms.

The Sculptors Guild has organized a large 70th anniversary exhibition on the island, with works displayed out of doors and inside one of the recently restored and reopened buildings. The show, called In-Site, will close on October 1 and the island closes for the season on October 5.

If you have the time to go, take one of the free ferries from Lower Manhattan; they go to Governors Island every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Don’t miss the boat or you’ll have to wait until next year.

By the way … I wasn’t able to match up all of the works I saw with their creators. If you can identify the sculptors, please let me know.

    Nice … its been half a lifetime since I visited Gov’s Island … now you’ve made me want to go see the exhibit!

    BTW .. I use a MAC and I have found Photoshop Elements 6 very confusing .. check out http://www.picnik.com they have easier to use effects …
