LMCC’s Arts Center


The Arts Center at Governors Island is the first permanent home for arts and culture on Governors Island, an incubator for creative experimentation, and a space for engagement and dialogue. Curated and programmed by LMCC, work developed and presented at The Arts Center focuses on sustainability and equity.

Located on Governors Island, a short 8-minute ferry ride from Lower Manhattan and housed in a beautiful 19th-century munitions warehouse, LMCC’s Arts Center at Governors Island offers over 11,000 square feet of event space with breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline and New York Harbor.
