A short and free ferry ride will take Manhattanites and Brooklynites to an island wide exhibition of the work of over 150 international independent artists and galleries. The Second Annual Governors Island Art Fair will be open to the public every weekend September 5-27 from 11am to 6pm. Ferries to Governors Island are available from Manhattan Friday to Sunday and from Brooklyn Saturday and Sunday only. A schedule is available here. The opening reception is on September 5 from 3pm to 6pm. Last year the arts group 4heads Collective filled a fifty room army barracks on the island with art done in a wide range of media. This year the barracks will be utilized again, along with several other interior spaces, and work from several local and international art galleries will be exhibited along with the work of independent artists. There will also be live music and dance and performance art. (9/7/2009)
