Today (Okay, now it is "yesterday"), Brian and I took the lovely ferry over to Governor's Island for the Figment Art Show--an exhibit that is run entirely by volunteers and is completely free to the public. If you've never been out to Governor's Island, I highly recommend it. It is always free to get there via ferry boat at these times on the weekend and it is a nice and easy retreat from the city. Bring a picnic!!
There usually aren't quite as many people as shown in the photo above. This was just due to the art show. It's typically quieter-- with a handful of people just laying around in the grass or riding their bikes around on the trails. How lovely! :)
Our good friend Ryan Nussbaum gave us the heads up on this event! The company he works for (MSLK) was showing this piece on the island:
So most of the art was not really my style--a bit pretentious :( but if anything it was just nice to walk around outside. Here is a little bit of what we saw before it started to rain on us:
Interpretive dance I guess.
People on stilts.
Giving away gnomes (but only after making people take an oath)
A family tree with lots of drawings of families
pirate ship bikes
And my favorite-- a Childhood Dream Tree :)
K, nuff photos. BYEEEE.
